CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - The magnitude of the Colorado theater shooting could be heard in the first 911 call to police.
The call was played Tuesday in court during a hearing laying out the prosecution's case against suspected gunman James Holmes. The call lasted 27 seconds and police say at least 30 shots could be heard.
The call came in 18 minutes into the showing of "The Dark Knight Rises".
Police also played a 911 call from a teenage cousin of 6-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan, the youngest person killed. A dispatcher tried to talk her through CPR but she sounded panicked and said she couldn't hear.
Holmes stared straight ahead as the calls were played and didn't show any emotion.
