NYDN: ‘Dark Knight Rises’ screening shooting in suburban Denver leaves 12 dead, 59 injured.

AURORA, Colo. – The heavily armed gunman who shot 71 people – killing 12 – at a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” near Denver boasted to cops that he was Batman’s arch nemesis.

“He said he was the Joker, enemy of Batman,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said after conferring with his counterpart in Aurora.

“He had his hair painted red,” Kelly added.

The suspect – identified as James Holmes, 24, a former University of Colorado medical school student – was arrested shortly after the rampage at a movie complex about 10 miles east of Denver.

The gunman burst into the packed theater through an emergency door 20 minutes into the film, set off two canisters emitting smoke or tear gas and opened fire, authorities said.
