Aurora Moves Forward With Emergency Response Study
AURORA, Colo. - The City of Aurora is moving forward with reviewing the emergency response times for the theater shooting massacre. According to the Aurora Sentinel, the Aurora City Council voted Monday to move forward a $249,000 study. The goal is to identify what went well and areas for improvement following the July 20 shooting that killed 12 people and left 70 others injured. Police Chief Dan Oates says it's important to document the response, saying some emergency personnel were "superheroes'' that night. Oates says the prosecution has now progressed far enough that the study won't interfere with the case against the suspect, James Holmes.
