A masked man shot dead as many as 14 innocent people and wounded over 50 after he opened fire at the latest Batman movie Premiere in Denver, United States of America.

It has been reported that the man shot a baby down from a point blank range amongst many other infants.

The shooting took place at the Century Aurora 16 Movie Theatre which is the suburb of Aurora, Colorado.

The cinema was packed for The Dark Knight Rises premiere which is expected to be one of a block buster of the year.

Batman has strong following all across the United Stated and most of his admirers is amongst the youth.

It was earlier believed that two gunmen entered the cinema and were called as “bombs” by the eye-witness but it is now believed that only one man entered the hall and threw tear gas into the crowd.

“As people ran this gunman opened fire hitting people. Police sources have told us there are at least 10 bodies inside the cinema, most of them children or teenagers, and one baby,” an eye-witness briefed.

“A baby was shot at point blank range, the family were gathered around screaming”.

“Police officers are carting the injured to the hospital in their own cars, not waiting for the ambulances”.

Brenda Stuart from 805 KOA Radio briefed, “People inside tell us they thought it was part of the movie”.

“They heard what they thought were firecrackers, loud bangs and all of a sudden they saw the bullets flying”.

“Police officers are carting the injured to the hospital in their own cars, not waiting for the ambulances”.

Police claims that the gunman is under arrest and the authorities have also noted that inflammable devices have also been found in the suspect’s house.
