KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Movie giant AMC Theatres says it's reviewing security procedures after a shooting early Friday at a Colorado movie theater that killed 12 people and wounded nearly 60 others.

The Kansas City, Mo.-based company said in a statement provided to The Associated Press on Friday that it is "terribly saddened by the random act of violence in Aurora."

A suspect was arrested outside the theater near a car after the shooting at a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" in the Denver suburb.

AMC says it is actively working with local law enforcement in communities across the country to make sure its facilities are safe. It says on its website it has more than 300 movie houses, making it the nation's second-largest theater chain.
