    The heroes of the gun attack in Aurora

    he is my hero too...if i were him ,i would do the same thing.my gender doesnt differ..



    Shooting victim Alex Teves had 'a heart of gold,' saved girlfriend


    AURORA, Colo. — A U.S. Navy veteran who served three tours of duty in the Middle East. A 6-year-old girl excited about her swimming classes. A Target employee who shielded his girlfriend and her brother with his own body. They and nine others were killed in the shooting rampage during a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" in a Denver suburb.

    Here are their stories.

    Alex Teves, a 24-year-old man originally from Arizona, is being identified as one of the victims in the Aurora movie theater mass shooting early Friday morning.

    Teves was living in the Denver area, after graduating from the University of Denver. The university released a statement that said:

    "It is with great sadness that we share with you the tragic loss of a recent graduate student, Alex Teves, in the senseless shooting at an Aurora movie theater early Friday morning.

    "Alex, a Phoenix, Ariz., native, graduated in June of this year with an MA in Counseling Psychology within the Morgridge College of Education.

    "Our deepest condolences are with Alex’s family and friends, including the many current students and faculty who knew and worked with Alex.

    "This tragedy can be difficult to understand and members of the DU community are encouraged to use the resources available through the Office of Student Outreach and Support, Michael.Johnson259@du.edu or 303-871-4724."

    ABC News reported that Teves went to see 'The Dark Knight Rises' with his girlfriend Amanda and a friend named Caitlin.

    Teves' father, Tom Teves, told ABC News that his son had blocked his girlfriend from a bullet when he was himself shot and killed

    His father told ABC that he would do anything to save his girlfriend.

    A Twitter feed that appears to belong to Teves’ friend, Caitlin, highlighted her hopeful search for her friend in the movie theater following the aftermath of the shooting.

    "Shots fired in the theater…” read one tweet, followed by “…I’m outside, one of my friends is inside. No one knows what’s going on.”

    Caitlin, @dingos8myTARDIS, continued to thank followers for prayers as Alex remained missing.

    “Alex didn’t make it,” Caitlin tweeted Friday. “Alex Teves was one of the best men I ever knew. The world isn’t as good a place without him.”

    She described him as being an Arizona basketball fan and that he “died a hero.”

    Other Twitter users tweeted notes in memoriam of Teves as news spread that he was one of the victims claimed in the shooting that killed 12 people.

    Teves' father told ABC that he had "a heart of gold."

    Our sister station, KNXV, learned that Teves’ family, living in Phoenix, flew to Colorado after the shooting.

    A next door neighbor of the Teves family noted that she had known Alex since he was a young child and that he has two younger brothers.

    I would have prefered no one would ever have to do such an unselfish act, but am glad to hear that there are people who can/do. If only there were no one to place them in such situations the world would be a better place.

    I have often heard the quote "Adversity builds character" , This may be somewhat true.
    I think adversity reveals character.
    The traits that allowed us to see them as Heroes was already there.

    Re: The heroes of the gun attack in Aurora

    These people were certainly heroic, and as Quag pointed out, it is a shame that Holmes put these people in a position of having to make those sacrifices. Life is already risky enough without sick "human beings" making choices that make it more so. My thoughts are definitely with the families and friends of those who've lost loved ones in that shooting.

    I don't agree with that. well trained competent people should be armed. those without training or competence should not be

    its like saying Trained EMTs should carry medical gear


    people who don't know how to use a defibrillator or a scapel-absolutely not

    Completely agree, the biggest shame is the assailant always knows when they will attack thus always have the advantage.
