(AP) As many as 20 people were injured when shooting erupted around midnight Thursday at a suburban Denver movie theater, police said.
The Aurora, Colo. police dispatch office said that there are fatalities but they don't know how many.
Calls about the shooting started coming in about 12:30 a.m. Friday from a mall theater that was showing the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises," the office said.
Police spokeswoman Cassidee Carlson says "the scene is still very active and we have little information for release at this time."There were unconfirmed reports from local media that as many as 10 people could have been killed and dozens more injured by one or two gunmen who entered the Aurora 16 movie theater as the premiere began. The reports could not be independently confirmed, but a CBS News crew was on the way to the scene early Friday morning.
Swedish Medical Center spokeswoman Nicole Williams says two people injured at the theater have arrived at the hospital in critical condition.
She says emergency workers have said there could be several more patients.
