U.S. Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) issued the following statement in responding to this morning's shooting in Aurora, Colorado that killed at least 12 people and wounded many more after a gunman opened fire in a crowded movie theater:
"I am outraged by the senseless murder of innocent Americans in Colorado. This could have been any movie theater in the country, and I join Rhode Islanders in sending my thoughts and prayers to the victims, their loved ones, and the people of Colorado.
"We still don't have all the facts, but we do know Americans always pull together in moments like this to support those impacted by tragedy.
"Thankfully the gunman was quickly apprehended and now must be thoroughly investigated, prosecuted, and brought to justice."
