“Tonight, at the same time the first 911 call came in to Dispatch that tragic night, we gathered with other first responder brothers & sisters to remember everyone forever impacted. Our hearts remain with all of those lost, the survivors, families & our community. #NeverForget,” Aurora PD shared.

“Ten years since the Aurora theater shooting and we are only just beginning to scratch the surface with legislation to prevent gun violence. We owe it to the victims and their families to do better. My prayers remain with them as they continue to heal,” Rep. Val Demings said.
“It’s been 10 years since the shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, CO. Twelve innocent people were killed and 70 were injured. I know how it feels to mark such a painful milestone. I will never forget the lives lost that day, and I will never stop honoring them with action,” Gabrielle Giffords said.
“10 years ago today was the Aurora Theater Shooting. I’ll never forget the survivors and victims’ families who’ve struggled ever since July 20, 2012. The heartbreak I witnessed in Colorado has stuck with me ever since. #AuroraStrong,” Mark Meredith shared.
