Statement by President Obama on the Shooting in Colorado

July 20, 2012

The following is a statement from President Obama on the shooting at a showing of 'The Dark Knight Rises' in Colorado. 

Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shooting in Colorado. Federal and local law enforcement are still responding, and my Administration will do everything that we can to support the people of Aurora in this extraordinarily difficult time. We are committed to bringing whoever was responsible to justice, ensuring the safety of our people, and caring for those who have been wounded. As we do when confronted by moments of darkness and challenge, we must now come together as one American family. All of us must have the people of Aurora in our thoughts and prayers as they confront the loss of family, friends, and neighbors, and we must stand together with them in the challenging hours and days to come.

The president was notified of the incident by Homeland Security Adviser Jon Brennan at 5:26 a.m. ET this morning.
