WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Defense says three members of the U.S. Armed Forces were wounded in a movie theater shooting in Colorado and one is unaccounted for.
The agency says a Navy sailor was injured and a male sailor who was at the theater early Friday morning cannot be located. The sailors are part of a Navy Cyber Command unit at nearby Buckley Air Force base.
Two Air Force airmen based at Buckley were also wounded, but their specific unit hasn't been released.
Both branches of the military are working with the families of the service members to make sure they are cared for.
The Defense Department also says the suspect, James Holmes, is not a past or current member of any branch or component of the Armed Forces.
