Aurora Theater Shooting

             On Friday, July 20, 2012, a heavily armed gunman entered Theater Nine of Aurora, Colorado’s Century 16 movie theater and opened fire. The crowd, who was in attendance for the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, consisted of families, students, armed forces members, young professionals and cinematic enthusiasts. As horrified movie goers began to dispurse in a haze of gun fire and confusion, twelve people were killed and at least 58 others were injured. In the days following the shooting, the local, national and international community surrounded those who were lost and survivors with unprecendented love and support. The local media continues to report stories of true heroism in the face of unimaginable circumstances that provoke internal reflection.

            The Aurora Theater Tragedy, as dubbed by local media outlets, occurred just eleven miles from The Blue Cell, LLC main office. Several of the companies principals have called Aurora, Colorado home for over 40 years. The Blue Cell, LLC offers its endless condolences for the victims, families, friends and community affected by the shooting.
