The shooting that took place thousands of miles away, is being felt as close as Forest.
18-year-old Gage Hankins, of Forest, Ohio, and his family, were visiting Colorado for a conference, when Gage and a few of his friends went to see the midnight showing of the new movie the Dark Knight Rises.
Back in the hotel room, Gage's mother and father received a call from their son's friend Steve; a call they never expected. What seemed to be an unreal experience for his parents, back at the scene of the shooting, it took Gage some time to put together what had just happened.
"He saw some smoke; heard a pop sound; thought it was part of the movie; and then felt something warm. Looking down at his arm, he realized he had just been shot," said Gage's father.
Now looking to answer the question why, psychologists dig into the life of 24-year-old gunman James Holmes. Allowing police to capture him and leaving behind evidence such as explosives, Dr. Ron DeLong (Ph.D: Clinical Psychology) says Holmes wanted to be taken alive, so he could watch his evil doings unravel.
Gage is expected to make a full recovery following the gun shot wound to his arm, and he and his family hope to fly back to Ohio on Sunday.
