Victim Of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Shooting Posts Harrowing Photos on Reddit
Today, the nation is reeling after a gunman went on a shooting rampage during a midnight screening of ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ in Aurora, Colorado.
James Holmes wore a gas mask and set off a canister of tear gas before he opened fire, killing at least 12 and wounding dozens more. The 24-year-old med school dropout is currently in custody.
According to Aurora Police chief Dan Oates, Holmes’ apartment and car are heavily booby-trapped with explosives and it could be days before authorities are able to search his residence for evidence.
Almost immediately after the tragedy the internet was flooded with tweets, photos and videos from survivors. Among those who used social media to convey the scoop of the tragedy was Redditor “Themurderator” who posted photos of the bullet wound he suffered during the shooting.

Despite the scary-looking hole in his shirt and his back, Thermurderator is going to be fine, as the bullet didn’t lodge inside of him. “I’ve been inspected by a number of paramedics and they’ve given me the okay to get to the hospital for stitches on my own,” he wrote. “Just wanted to get it out there now so that everyone knows I’m okay.”
Others weren’t so lucky, and our thoughts and prayers are with them.
