Aurora Theater Shooting

Video: Broncos' Eric Decker on living through school shooting, helping Aurora theater survivor

Eric Decker had some ups and downs in the Broncos' win over the Chargers last night -- catching a sure touchdown pass before inexplicably falling down, and later scoring a TD in an impressive act of will. But he's familiar with emotional swings, having lived through a school shooting -- an experience that's led him to reach out to survivors of the Aurora theater shooting, including a past Westword profile subject. Details and video below.
