Family members of the victims of the Century 16 theater shooting remember their loved ones during a vigil at the Aurora Municipal Center campus in Aurora, Colo., July 22. Twelve people were killed and 58 were injured in a shooting during an early Friday premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises."

“We are a family in Aurora," said Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan. "We are good hard-working people who believe in the goodness of our fellow man. We are coming together as a family would.”

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper read aloud the names of the 12 people killed in the shooting, and after each one the crowd chanted in unison: "We will remember."

Hickenlooper also deliberately avoided mentionting the name of the 24-year-old suspect, James Eagan Holmes, who allegedly wounded 58 other theatergoers. “I refuse to say his name," he said. "In my house, we’re just going to call him Suspect A.”
