Ad Feedback

AURORA - A gunman and three other people are dead after an hours-long standoff with police at a home in Aurora, Colo.
 
Police say the suspect barricaded himself inside his modest townhome and fired shots at officers from a second-story window Saturday. He died as SWAT team members stormed the home.
 
Police say they found the bodies of two other men and a woman when they entered the house. Investigators say they appeared to have been killed before officers arrived.
 
It's believed the four knew each other.
 
It's not known if officers shot the suspect or if he shot himself.
 
The shootings occurred about four miles southeast of the Aurora Mall, where 12 people were killed and dozens were wounded by a gunman at a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" on July 20. The man charged in that shooting, James Holmes, goes to court Monday for a preliminary hearing in which prosecutors will present their case against him.
