Mequon native injured in Colo. theater shooting



A Wisconsin native is recovering after the shooting rampage at a Denver area movie theater showing the new Batman movie.

   Twenty-seven-year-old Carey Rottman and his friend were wounded by the gunman who killed 12 people and wounded nearly 60 others.

   Rottman posted on his Facebook page from a hospital emergency room that he was "Shot in the leg at Batman." The 27-year-old Mequon native asked, "Where is he when you need him. Please pray for everyone here."

   The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Rottman's friend was shot twice, but was recovering.

   A 15-year-old Plymouth girl was in an adjacent theater when the gunman began shooting.

   Katie Trakel was not hurt but tells The Sheboygan Press a stray bullet went through the wall and hit one of her friends in the arm.
