A gunman opened fired Friday at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises, killing 12 people and wounding 58.

"The patients were really happy to meet Bale," said Bill Voloch, interim president of the Medical Center of Aurora.
The actor, who has portrayed Batman in all three of director Christopher Nolan's films on the subject, had previously released a statement of condolences.
"Words cannot express the horror that I feel,” he said Saturday. “I can't begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.
”Christopher Nolan (Producer, Writer and Director) stated, "I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime. The movie theater is my home and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place is such an unbearably savage way is devasting to me.
