No one knows what's going on.” She added, “Oh God, I don't know what to do.” Photos: Scene of the shooting | Hollywood reacts A YouTube video showed the scene outside the doors of the movie in the wake of the shooting; there was no screaming, but moviegoers can be seen filing out of the theater, including one man covered in blood around the 0:50-second mark of the video.

The pair's split, like many high-profile break-ups, has been public and messy. Mike and Ike, a staple at movie theater concession stands and grocery store check-outs, called it quits. The announcement came through the candy's Facebook page last week, and also announced on Tumblr and Twitter. "Yes, it's true," the announcement read. "We should have seen it coming.

Pope Benedict XVI on Sunday told Mexican Catholics that renewed faith and a pure heart will help them stand up to "distressing times of human suffering" in a nation stalked by drug violence, crime and uncertainty. At a vast, sunbaked open-air Mass, with several hundred thousand people arrayed before him, the pope said Mexico faced "times of sorrow as well as hope" and he reiterated a call for the special protection of children. Of particular significance here, Benedict repeatedly invoked the Virgin of Guadalupe, patron saint of Mexico and Latin America.
