More Aurora victims laid to rest

AURORA, Colo. (AP) - Colorado's governor and police officers were among more than 1,000 people who gathered to remember a recent high school graduate who died in the theater shootings in Aurora.

A memorial fund has been established for his four children at Chase Bank.
