VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Marcus Weaver, a 1989 graduate of Green Run High School, said when the sounds of shots rang out in a theater in Aurora, Colo., early Friday morning his first thought was it was just part of the movie.
Weaver was at the 12:05 a.m. showing of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises," when a gunman wearing a gas mask set off an unknown gas and fired a gun into the crowded movie theater.
Authorities say 12 people were killed and at least 50 others were injured .
Weaver spoke to WAVY News 10's Cheryl Tan about the scene, which he described as "utter chaos."
