Childhood neighbors mourn loss of Sailor killed in theater shooting

A sailor in the U.S. Navy is among the 12 who died in the theater shooting rampage.

John Larimer, 27, was stationed in Aurora, and he went to the premiere that night.

A Navy notification team arrived at the Illinois home of Larimer's parents late Friday night to inform them their son was killed.

Saturday, flags line the streets of the quiet neighborhood where Larimer grew up.

"As a mother, it breaks my heart," said Julie Gates, a neighbor of Larimer's parents. "I can't imagine, and this family, just especially, they're a nice family."

Many people who live there want to show their support for Larimer's service in the Navy.
