Shooting victims mourned at memorial

Mourners gather, paying their respects to 12 people gunned down in the Denver suburb of Aurora. A makeshift memorial sprung up outside the mall, where a gunman stormed a multiplex theatre in the early hours of Friday (July 20) morning. As the community tries to come to terms with the tragedy, young and old have been coming together. SOUNDBITE: JARREN PEREG, YOUNG BOY, SAYING (English): "I felt really sorry for the people who got killed in the movie theatre. They were just trying to have a good time but instead they got murdered." The mall has re-opened after a temporary closure. The movie theatre itself will remained closed until further notice. The names of all 12 victims have now been released. Their ages range from 6 to 51. SOUNDBITE: KIM TALBOT, MOURNER, SAYING (English): "I feel safe in this community. That's what's so shell-shocking is that I go out at night at midnight to go get gas. I would have never questioned my son going to the movies. If he were to ask me that night can he run down here and go to the movies with his friends, I would've said: 'Absolutely, not a problem, I'll see you when you get back.' I wouldn't have questioned that." Suspect James Holmes is due in court on Monday (July 23). His apartment was found booby-trapped with dozens of explosive devices. The authorities have now completed the painstaking task of disarming the property. Sarah Charlton, Reuters.
