Pentagon Reports Military Casualties In Colorado Shooting

The Pentagon says that some members of the military were either killed or wounded in the Colorado shooting at the Batman movie.

In a statement Friday afternoon, the Pentagon says one sailor was injured and another is unaccounted for. Two airmen were also injured in the shooting. The Navy and the Air Force are working with the families of the service members to make sure they have the care and attention they need.

The Defense Department also says the suspect, James Holmes, is not a past or current member of any branch or component of the Armed Forces.

Holmes has been taken into custody in the deadly Denver-area shooting spree that killed 12 people and injured at least 50 others during a midnight showing of the movie Friday.

The FBI said there was no indication that the shooting is tied to any terrorist groups.
