Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper should take a $5.2 million victims’ fund away from a private group so that assistance can more quickly be distributed, family members of many of those killed or wounded in the Aurora mass shooting said Thursday.
The family of a man who was among 12 people shot and killed in a Colorado movie theater rampage is thanking the Aurora police chief and his staff for their “kindness and compassion” after the shooting.
The families of those killed in the Aurora mass shootings, including the family of A.J. Boik, are planning for the funerals.
James Holmes, the suspect in the theater shootings, appeared in court to be advised of his rights on Monday, and the crowd in the courtroom included the father of a young man killed in the shootings.
The suspect in Friday’s mass shooting in Aurora appeared before an Arapahoe County judge Monday morning with orange hair and a dazed look.
