4 shot dead near scene of US cinema massacre

Times International Desk - January 8th, 2013

A gunman killed three people before police killed him in turn in a shooting in a house in Aurora, Colorado, scene of a massacre in a cinema last year.
Local media reported Saturday, The Straits Times publishes the report on Sunday.
Aurora made global headlines in July 2012 after a horrific shooting at a movie theatre that left 12 people dead and 58 others wounded during the first midnight screening of the latest Batman film, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.
On Saturday, several homes were evacuated and roads were closed for safety reasons before the gunman was shot by police, according to Kusa.
Earlier, while the siege was still ongoing, local police officer Sergeant Cassidee Carlson had told the station, ‘We’ve been able to contact him intermittently… We haven’t been able to keep contact with him’.
