Hundreds attend vigil for victims of Aurora plant shooting

Hundreds attend vigil for victims of Aurora plant shooting

The Aurora business where five people were shot to death last week will open its doors to employees Monday.

Authorities said Martin brought a pistol to his termination meeting at the plant and started shooting when he found out he'd been fired. Pinkard's wife, Terra, said that her husband sent her a final text just before succumbing to his gunshot wounds.

For Terra Pinkard, the nightmare began with an ominous text from her husband: "I love you, I've been shot at work". His wife, Abby Parks, wrote on Facebook Saturday morning, "Every time I've closed my eyes over the last twelve hours, I've opened them hoping to wake from a bad dream, but that's not the case".

Terra tried to call and FaceTime her husband several times, but to no avail. Her husband, the plant manager, graduated from Mississippi State and had moved to Aurora recently, police said.

Aurora Mayor Richard C. Irvin told the vigil crowd that the city's residents feel for the victims' families "with all our hearts".

"The smartest person I've ever met!" she wrote.

Martin had purchased the murder weapon, a.40-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun with a laser sight, in March 2014 from a local gun dealer, Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman told reporters on Saturday. "He read my husband's name".

"The fact remains that some disgruntled person walked in and had access to a firearm that he shouldn't have had access to", she said at the news conference.
