Dozens of theater shooting victims seek fund aid

DENVER (AP) — Dozens of victims of the Colorado movie theater shootings have submitted claims to receive money from a fund set up to support them.

Thursday was the deadline for submissions. The governor’s office says 52 claims, including three duplicates, have been received so far. Claims postmarked by Thursday also will be accepted.

Twelve people were killed and at least 58 were injured when a gunman opened fire at a showing in Aurora of the new Batman movie July 20.



Claims received so far come from families of victims who were killed, those who were paralyzed or suffered brain injuries, and those who had overnight hospital stays.

Mediator Ken Feinberg is determining how much each claimant will receive. The Aurora Victim Relief Fund has collected more than $5 million from donors.
