A calm suspect amid the chaos at Colo. theater

Police testify about arriving at mass shooting

CENTENNIAL, Colo. — A police officer testified at a preliminary hearing Monday that when he responded to emergency calls about a mass shooting at a crowded movie theater in Aurora, Colo., this summer, he found the suspected gunman standing calmly outside his car in a parking lot.

The arrest was made just moments after the man had allegedly opened fire inside, killing 12 people and injuring 58 others.
