Aurora movie theater shooting witnesses used Twitter, Reddit and Youtube to share photos of the police reaction to the rampage allegedly carried out by 24-year-old James Holmes that left 12 dead - and the aftermath.
One victim, present at the "The Dark Knight Rises" premiere, posted photos of his injuries on Reddit early today, drawing hundreds of sympathetic comments. Another witness used Youtube to post chilling mobile footage of the shootings, as embedded below.
Sportscaster Jessica Ghawi, who was killed at the theater, was Tweeting immediately before her death. She expressed excitement about "Dark Knight," and lamented that it wouldn't start for 20 more minutes. And then her feed went dead.
Ghawi had narrowly escaped a Toronto mall shooting early last month, and wrote about it with disturbing prescience on her blog.
Others on the scene posted photos - and commentary - to the microblogging website:
