Video:12 shot dead at midnight ‘Dark Knight Rises’ screening in Colorado

Published by EOTM News Editor on July 20th, 2012 - in Breaking News, Trending, World Hip Hop

A gas mask-wearing gunman opened fire early Friday at a suburban Denver movie theater, leaving at least 12 people dead and 50 others injured, police said.

Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates told reporters that 10 people died at the scene and four others died after being taken to local hospitals. However, a police officer later told MSNBC TV that the death toll had been revised to 12. A three-month-old and a six-year-old girl were among those treated, according to reports.

Police said the gunman had appeared at the front of the theater during the movie and released a canister which let out a hissing sound, which is believed to be tear gas. Witnesses told reporters that gunfire erupted during a shootout scene in the film.

“It was mass chaos,” witness Jennifer Seeger told TODAY. ”He was five feet away from me.”

The gunman shot the ceiling and then “he threw in the gas can, and then I knew it was real,” Seeger added.

“Everyone’s going for the door and then everyone starts saying, ‘no, he’s going to shoot people going for the door, and he did,” she recalled. “They’re trying to escape, and he shot those people as well.”

Official Shop of Warner Bros

A suspect was apprehended in the shopping center’s parking lot, Oates said. He was named as 24-year-old James Holmes, two federal officials from different agencies told NBC News.

The incident occurred in the Century 16 Movie Theaters at the Aurora Town Center, police told NBC News. Aurora is a suburb less than 10 miles east of downtown Denver.

NBC station KUSA-Denver cited a witness as seeing a black-clad 6-foot-tall man wearing a riot helmet, goggles and bullet-proof vest.

However, many people attended the film dressed in Batman-related costumes.

Witnesses said the gunman entered the theater through an emergency exit door.

The suspect was found in possession of a gas mask, Oates said. Ammunition was found in the suspect’s car, police said.

President Obama said he is “shocked and saddened” by the mass shooting overnight at a Colorado movie theater that left at least 12 dead and up to 50 wounded.

The president, in a statement released early Thursday morning, urged the nation to “come together as one American family” and keep the people of Aurora, the site of the shooting, in their prayers.

“Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shooting in Colorado,” Obama said. “Federal and local law enforcement are still responding, and my Administration will do everything that we can to support the people of Aurora in this extraordinarily difficult time.

“We are committed to bringing whoever was responsible to justice, ensuring the safety of our people, and caring for those who have been wounded. As we do when confronted by moments of darkness and challenge, we must now come together as one American family. All of us must have the people of Aurora in our thoughts and prayers as they confront the loss of family, friends, and neighbors, and we must stand together with them in the challenging hours and days to come.”

An amateur video posted to Youtube (see below) showed people walking around outside the theater, allegedly in the moments after the incident. One man was seen wearing a shirt that appeared to be bloodstained. He was being led by a police officer. Some people could be heard shouting.

Tupac Resurrected at Coachella?

On Sunday night a ghostly version of West Coast rap legend Tupac Shakur materialized on stage alongside his old friend Snoop Dogg during a crowd-pleasing set by the Doggfather and Dr. Dre, which also featured appearances from Eminem, 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa and Warren G.

“What up, Coachella?” the shirtless Pac, asked the crowd before bouncing into the classic single “Hail Mary.

The Tupac hologram was spectacular. His abs still looked great and there was a certain spring in his step as he and (the living) Snoop rapped their collaboration “2 of Americaz Most Wanted.”

“We worked with Dr. Dre on this and it was Dre’s vision to bring this back to life,” said Nick Smith, president of AV Concepts, the San Diego company that created the hologram. “It was his idea from the very beginning and we worked with him and his camp to utilize the technology to make it come to life.”

50 Cent arrived to do bits of his early classics — “Wanksta,” “P.I.M.P.” and “In Da Club” — and the masses were enthusiastic and welcoming to our East Coast guest. Eminem waltzed out casually, his hoodie pulled up, to salute Dre’s work with some verses — the best of which was a snippet of “Forgot About Dre,” a Dre track from 2001. Snoop and Dre honored the late singer Nate Dogg, the soulful singer who provided hooks on some of G-funk’s classic jams as well.

Dre and Snoop closed Coachella 2012, Part 1 on a high note and delivered the California vibe to a lot of its happy fans. What were your thoughts? Leave comments below.

Love & Hip Hop recap

“Love & Hip Hop” Star Kimbella Vanderhee Says Fight With Erica Mena Was Not Edited by VH1

Potentially sparking another fight, Love & Hip Hop star Kimbella Vanderhee told TMZ that the major scuffle she got in with fellow cast member on the series, Erica Mena, wasn’t at all edited for cameras, despite the fact that Mena herself claimed otherwise.

Previously, Mena had said that the network, VH1, edited the clip to make her look like the bad guy, only showing the part where she blew up at Vanderhee for “cheapening the video vixen industry.” Fair enough, considering this is reality television and that means it often isn’t one bit reality at all. But Vanderhee is directly disputing all of this, saying that the fight portrayed Mena as the villain because she is one, and the episode just showed the world her true colors.

“VH1 didn’t do editing on anything,” Vanderhee said. “That’s who she is.”

Mena responded to Vanderhee’s comments with a rather level head for someone who’s supposedly a villain, telling TMZ, “I wish her well and much success in 2012. Have a happy new year!”

So, who do you think is telling the truth? Check out the original clip of the fight below.

Moved by a strong desire to push conscious music to mainstream, the Explore South Africa Tour (ESAT) rounds up hip hop artists from across the globe for a great cause… singing the tunes of good ole “conscious music.”

ESAT  harnesses the spirit of innovation, creativity and activism at the core of the Hip-Hop community, empowering hip hop artists, fans and brands, transforming communities across the globe.

With the help of Senegal’s hip hop band Wagëblë, West African born rapper Kiki Romeo, South Africa Hip Hop Artist DJ Duce and others, ESAT will help to represent South Africa hip hop to music lovers globally. Artists on the roster will add their unique music blend of hip hop, helping to boost conscious rap into the forefront of the world stage.

Wagëblë‟s message to the youth in Sénégal emphasizes hard work, self-determination and encourages the building of the future in Sénégal, their Motherland. Multilingual rapper Kiki Romeo and DJ Duce offers a conscious and revolutionary sound strengthened by articulated and rooted messages that are combined with an always renewed mind.

Waterflow of the hip hop band Wagëblë, was an inspiration for some of the tours ideals; a main focal point was his emphasis on conscious artists being the voice of the voiceless as well as being instrumental in promoting the ideals of socio-economic and racial parity.

In an interview with ABC News, Moussa Lo, a.k.a. Waterflow said he became a hip-hop singer not for success or his own glory, but to be “The voice of the voiceless, Hip-hop in Africa needs to grow, we are the journalists for the people.”

In 2011 Wagëblë is still portrayed as the voice of the voiceless generation in Dakar, and is currently looked upon as one of Senegals most popular Hip Hop Groups.

The ESAT is guided by the vision that global change begins with individual activism and local investment in holistic, sustainable programs and initiatives. ESAT embraces every nationality and culture bridging music across racial and political boundaries, in turn reshaping hip hop as we know it.
