To say that additional details are scarce is to understate the situation considerably. Thus far, there isn't even confirmation of the victim's gender, let alone any other pertinent information about the wheres and the whys of the shooting. But no matter how everything went down, you can bet there are friends, family and loved ones shaken by the incident in Aurora and beyond.

Jame, please slitger back under the rock from which you came. This page has been reporting this stuff all summer long, or did you just get here? The city may not be for you, there's a lot of lovely militia towns that better match your ignorance level.

Somebody's probably going around shooting people because they are pissed about that thing in Ferguson. That is is probably the only reason why Phil Lucero got killed


not a whole lot of cctv cameras in the neighborhoods themselves, YET. don't worry, there will be soon.
