WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon says that some members of the military were either killed or wounded in the Colorado shooting at the Batman movie.
Pentagon press secretary George Little says it's not yet clear how many military casualties there were, or whether they were deaths or injuries.
Marine Col. Dave Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman, says initial indications are that the suspect, James Holmes, was not a member of the military.
Holmes has been taken into custody in the deadly Denver-area shooting spree that killed 12 people and injured at least 50 others during a midnight showing of the movie Friday.
The FBI says there is no indication the shooting is tied to any terrorist groups.
