Janelle Monae, a singer, tweeted the following on Friday after learning of the incident: “devastated by the Colorado movie theatre killings. My heart hurts. We must be thankful daily for life. Anything at anytime could happen and you’re gone… Live life as happily as u can. I do not like guns btw. Not cool at all to me.”

The company that owns Century Theaters, Cinemark, said in a statement that it “is deeply saddened about this tragic incident and are working closely with the Aurora Police Department and local law enforcement.
