AURORA, Colo. (AP) — Family members are showing up at a suburban Denver high school where witnesses to a mass shooting at a movie theater were taken.
Tom Sullivan arrived at Gateway High School in Aurora Friday morning with a photo of his son, Alex, and was asking reporters if they'd seen him.
Byron Settles was at the high school looking for his nephew, Tyrell Hardiman. Settles says it's unusual because Hardiman was supposed to be at work but wasn't.

Colo. doctors treating rifle and buckshot wounds
One of the hospitals that took victims from a movie theater shooting that killed at least 12 and injured 50 is treating gunshot wounds from a high-powered rifle and buckshot wounds.
Children's Hospital Colorado emergency room physician Dr. Guy Upshaw says he thinks the buckshot likely came from a shotgun, but the small, metal pellets can also come from explosive devices.
Six people were brought to Children's, ranging from 6 to 31 years, and one has since died.
Two were shot by a rifle, three had buckshot wounds and one was injured by shrapnel.
A federal law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation said the gunman had an assault rifle, a shotgun and two pistols.

Many victims being treated in at least six hospitals were under 40, including a 6-year-old taken to Children's Hospital Colorado. The oldest reported patient is 45.
Besides gunshot wounds, some patients at the Medical Center of Aurora were treated for chemical exposure, most likely from tear gas. Patients there ranged from 16 to 31.
