AURORA, Colo. (AP) — A Denver suburb rocked by a deadly theater massacre is trying to cope with the shock and sadness today as police search for a motive and a safe way to enter the suspect's apparently booby-trapped apartment.

Late last night, police grimly went door to door notifying families of the 12 victims killed in the worst mass shooting in the U.S. in recent years. Another 58 people were injured either by gunfire or amid the chaos of people trying to flee the theater in Aurora, Colo.

The suspect's stellar academic record, apparent shy demeanor and lack of a criminal background is making the attack even more difficult to fathom.

The new Batman movie, the last in the trilogy starring Christian Bale, opened worldwide yesterday with midnight showings in the U.S.
