Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Jessica Ghawi, an aspiring broadcaster, who was killed during the bloody rampage at the premiere of the new Batman movie, “Dark Knight Rises,” in Aurora, Colo., early Friday morning. The gunman, James Egan Holmes, a medical student, is in police custody for the shooting rampage that left 12 dead and 71 wounded.
Jessica Ghawi, who went by the name Jessica Redfield during her stint at Fox 31, where she interned in the sports department, tweeted she was at the movies to watch “Dark Knight Rises.”
It’s shocking to learn that she narrowly escaped being killed during another shooting at a Toronto shopping mall that left one person dead and four others injured. She penned a now eerie post about how she left the scene just moments before that shooting took place. Again, our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Jessica Ghawi.
