(WDAY TV) -- The mass shooting is the worst in the United States since 2009.

There was an attack at Fort Hood, Texas on November 5th of that year. An Army psychiatrist was charged with killing 13 soldiers and civilians and wounding more than two dozen others.

In Colorado, it is the deadliest since the Columbine High School massacre on April 20, 1999, when two students opened fire in Littleton, killing 12 classmates and a teacher and wounding 26 others before killing themselves.

Columbine High is about 12 miles from the theater.
