The most recent figures show 12 people were killed and another 38 were injured when a gunman wearing a gas mask and body armor opened fire in the near-Denver theater at the opening of The Dark Knight Rises.
Anyway, several members of the Washington Redskins took to Twitter to publicly offer their thoughts to the victims and their families of this senseless act.
The most telling tweet so far comes from cornerback Morgan Trent, who said:
A shame that Gotham city isn't too far from our world today. Prayers to the victims families in Aurora.—

Several other Redskins joined in to offer their thoughts, including:

Perhaps the only comfort one can take from all this is that the alleged gunman is in police custody and should face a trial and lots of time behind bars — if not further punishment — for his actions.
With that, there’s certainly no words to express how sorry I am to anybody directly or indirectly involved in this gutless act.
