Families of Colorado theater victims plan public statement

Posted:

AURORA, Colo. (WKOW) -- Relatives of some of the people killed in the Colorado theater shootings plan to hold a news conference this week to talk about unspecified events they say need to be addressed.

A news release says the families will speak Tuesday about some behind-the-scenes events that they believe need to be discussed. Group spokeswoman Anita Busch declined to elaborate.

Twelve people were killed and 58 injured or wounded when a gunman opened fire on July 20 during a midnight showing of the latest Batman movie in Aurora.

Charges against James Holmes include murder and attempted murder. He's being held without bail and hasn't entered a plea.

His defense lawyers have said he is mentally ill.
