A man says he almost lost his son in the theater shooting. This father also lives near the suspected shooter.
Aspiring sports reporter killed in Colorado shooting, brother says
An aspiring Colorado sports reporter - who barely missed a deadly Toronto shooting last month - was among those gunned down at a movie theater in a Denver suburb early Friday morning, according to a statement from her brother, citing the coroner's office.
"Jessica (Ghawi) has indeed died of injuries sustained in the shooting," Jordan Ghawi said on his blog.
Their father, Nick, who had asked her brother to head out to Colorado to "confirm what's happened," could not be reached for comment Friday following the statement.
His daughter, Jessica Ghawi, had been at an Aurora multiplex to catch a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises," the latest installment of the Batman series, when a gunman burst in and began shooting.
