Colorado mall had racial troubles before theater shooting

The Town Center shopping mall has seen its share of trouble. Most recently, the tragic shooting at the Century 16 theater has brought more attention to the troubled area. However, over the years the Town Center mall has been known for incidents of racism and gang violence. Although the mall is currently denying any relationship with the theater, shooting crimes are nothing new to the area. The Huffington Post reports:

Until last week, the Town Center at Aurora seemed like a typical mall.

But the 37-year-old shopping center had problems even before July 20, when a gunman opened fire at a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” in the movie theater that sits adjacent to the mall in its parking lot.

In recent years, shoppers have fled the aging mall for fancier centers like nearby Cherry Creek.
