Aurora Theater Shooting

Months after Aurora theater shooting, days after Sandy Hook, officials launch trauma site

The tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut last week has reignited policy debates in Colorado that had quieted since the July 20 massacre in Aurora. And for victims of the theater shootings, the devastation in Connecticut can also trigger painful memories. That's why officials in Aurora decided to launch a local website this week dedicated to helping victims of trauma work toward recovery.
