WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has adopted a resolution honoring the Colorado theater shooting victims and the first responders in Aurora.

Adopted by voice vote on Thursday, the resolution recognizes individuals in the theater who selflessly sought to aid and protect others.

The resolution offered condolences to the families, friends and loved ones of the 12 who died. It expressed hope for the rapid and complete recovery of the wounded.

The House also applauded the hundreds of local, state and federal officials who offered support and honored the city of Aurora and the state of Colorado for their resilience in the face of adversity.

Fifty-eight people were wounded in the shooting.
