AURORA, Colo. (AP) Parents, siblings and survivors of those slain in the Aurora theater massacre exactly one year ago have held a ceremony of prayer, song and remembrance.
Several hundred people gathered in Aurora on Saturday to honor the victims, the survivors and first responders. The names of the dead were read, a bell ringing once for each victim.
Twelve people died in the attack, including a 6-year-old girl. Seventy were hurt, some of them paralyzed.
Saturday's speakers included Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.
