Joseph Gordon-Levitt Reacts To Batman Shootings
Star sends his sympathy to victims as suspect appears in court...
Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has issued a statement in response to the shootings at a cinema near Denver on Friday.
The 31-year-old's message of condolence came as suspect James Holmes made an appearance in court in Colorado in connection with the killing of 12 people and injury of 58 more at the screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
Gordon-Levitt tweeted: "My most sincere sympathies go out to the families of the victims in Aurora."
According to Digital Spy, 24-year-old Holmes was advised by the public defenders appointed to represent him that he should not talk at his hearing, where District Chief Judge William Sylvester ruled that he should be held in jail due to the nature of the charges against him.
The judge said there was probable cause to try Holmes with first-degree murder and it has been reported that he could face the death penalty if found guilty.
A protection order has been made by the judge, banning Holmes from contacting any of his victims or their relatives.
Warner Bros has cancelled several premieres of the movie as a mark of respect for the victims.
