DENVER — The following statement is to be attributed to Colorado Attorney General John Suthers in reaction to today's Aurora movie theatre shooting.
"Sadly, Colorado is once again the location of a tragic and senseless act of violence that will be seared into our collective psyche for years to come.
Law enforcement in Colorado has learned lessons from prior tragedies and has responded to this incident quickly, effectively and professionally. However, it is virtually impossible to prevent incidents of this nature.
I am confident Colorado law enforcement is doing everything and will do everything within its power to properly investigate this matter and bring the perpetrator of this tragedy to justice.
On behalf of all law enforcement in Colorado, our hearts go out to the victims and families and everyone impacted by this horrible crime."
