Colorado Shooting - Funerals
DENVER (AP) — Mourners have attended a funeral at a Denver church for the oldest of the 12 people killed at the weekend movie massacre in suburban Aurora.
Gordon Cowden, who was 51, had taken his teenage children to see the "Dark Knight Rises." The teens weren't injured. Carrying flowers and passing a large portrait of Cowden, about 150 mourners gathered for the funeral, which was attended by officials including Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.
Later this week, families of other victims planned to say their final goodbyes. Funerals are planned locally and from Texas to Illinois.
