AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- President Barack Obama says he told the families of the victims of Friday's movie theater massacre that "all of America and much of the world is thinking about them."
Obama met with the family members Sunday at the University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora, which treated 23 of the people injured in the mass shooting; 10 remain there, seven hurt critically. The massacre left 12 people dead, dozens injured and a nation in stunned sorrow.
He told reporters after the meeting that he came "not as president but as a father and a husband." He said "we can all understand what it would be to have someone taken from us in this fashion."
