Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) was at a loss for words when asked Sunday about what might have motivated the shooter who killed a dozen people and wounded many more in the Aurora, Colo. killings.
“I am speechless,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Obviously this is a deeply troubled, twisted, delusional person. And I can’t for the life of me, I don’t — I can’t conceive of a motive.”
He added: “I spent yesterday — most of yesterday — going from hospital to hospital and talking to families and, in some cases, talking to the wounded. It was amazing how buoyant the spirits were in many of these rooms, even with people who had suffered grievous wounds.”
