MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - As news about the early morning movie theater shootings in Colorado filtered to the Bluff City, law enforcement agencies and city leaders were carrying on with business as usual.
Memphis Police Director and Memphis Mayor A C Wharton were at a news conference about the closure of neighborhood crack houses along with Shelby County's Attorney General.
Wharton focused on the gunman's cache of weapons when asked to comment about the horrific events in Aurora, CO.
"We've got to do more about who gets guns and what kind of guns," he said.
Wharton said he didn't any civilian should be allowed to own the kinds of weapons that 24-year-old suspect James Holmes was reportedly carrying.
As for the need for extra security in Memphis movie theaters and future midnight showings of the new Batman sequel, Armstrong said there's no information indicating security should be beefed up in the Bluff City.
"At this time, I can't say that we're going to increase (security)," Armstrong said. "We don't have any information to substantiate us putting extra patrols at movie theaters. That particular incident happened at a movie theater; it can happen anywhere."
