Back in July, a gunman entered a movie theater in Aurora, CO and opened fire on the people enjoying the new Batman film. Less than 6 months after that horrifically tragic event, Aurora is now dealing with another tragedy.

An "armed and dangerous man" was shot to death by authorities on Saturday after he barricaded himself in his home with several hostages. It took a 6 hour standoff to thwart the shooter, but unfortunately it was too late for some. Police found three bodies in the home.

SWAT teams, hostage negotiators, and at least 40 police officers showed up to the scene which was described by police as "intense."

What caused the shooter to create such a terrible scene is still unknown.
