NYPD provides increased security at movie theaters after Denver 'Dark Knight' shooting

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City’s police commissioner says the NYPD is providing coverage at theaters featuring the new Batman movie.

Commissioner Raymond Kelly says the measure is being taken in the wake of the mass shooting in Colorado at a theater where “The Dark Knight Rises” was showing.

The violence erupted at the midnight opening of the movie in a Denver suburb. A 24-year-old suspect is under arrest.

Kelly said the NYPD was providing the extra security “as a precaution against copycats and to raise the comfort levels among movie patrons.”
