Aurora Movie Shooting 1 Year Later
Friends and family gathered at Alex Teves’ favorite pub on Saturday to remember the young man who lost his life way too soon.
Volunteers wanted to give back to the community and turn tragic memories into positive ones during Saturday’s Day of Service.
Two survivors of the Aurora theater shooting have a positive reason to commemorate July 20– they took their wedding vows one year after the day many hope to forget.
Hundreds shed tears and some friends and family held each other tight as they paid tribute to the victims at Aurora’s Day of Remembrance ceremony. The community’s emotions are just as raw a year later.
A year ago a community memorial sprung up in Aurora that included large crosses that paid tribute to each of the 12 victims who died in the movie theater shooting. The man who built the crosses came from Illinois, and one year later he returned with a new set of crosses.
Parents, siblings and survivors of those slain in the Aurora movie shooting attended a morning ceremony of prayer, song and remembrance outside Aurora’s City Hall.
A year later, tears still roll easily down the face of mother Theresa Hoover. The emotion of losing a son – so loved – so suddenly is a crushing burden.
Survivors of mass shootings in Colorado and Connecticut gathered with dozens of supporters Friday in Cherry Creek State Park to honor those killed in the massacre at an Aurora movie theater almost a year to the day after the attack.
Fifty-eight patients were rushed to hospitals across the city and 23 of them went to University of Colorado Hospital. CBS4′s Kathy Walsh sat down with some of the doctors and nurses who saved so many lives.
In the hours following the Aurora theater shooting there was an outpouring of support. Thousands of people brought flowers, candles and messages of support to a field across from the theater.
