@Abrandt: The gunman would remain at the hospital until doctors decide he is not a threat to himself or others. It could be years... or his whole life. Think of John Hinckley Jr. He shot President Reagan more than 30 years ago and is still in a mental hospital (although he is now getting limited amounts of time outside the facility.)

APD Officer Robert Wong says it took him a "matter of minutes" to get to the theater after the call went out at 12:38 a.m.
APD Officer Robert Wong said when he heard the call, he was at 16th & Peoria - which is just a block from the gunman's apartment.
@Abrandt: Possible but extremely unlikely IMO.
BACKGROUND: Wong is listed in the APD 2013 Awards and Commendations report as a recipient of several of the Century-16-related awards. Some of the awards list a "Bobby Wong" and others list "Robert Wong" but I think those both pertain to him.
APD Officer Robert Wong said he went into Theater 8: "The last few people were coming out... we could see the bullet holes from the next theater... see the light and gas coming through the holes."
APD Officer Robert Wong said he then entered Theater 9 to make sure the threat was contained/over.
@nt8 ONE objection sustained!
APD Officer Robert Wong on hearing about a teen victim in Theater 9: "I was informed that he was still alive and we needed to get him in a truck and to the hospital as soon as possible."
@joey @nt8: There was just another one! But no, I'm not keeping a tally!
@NT8: Just having trouble keeping up with all the great comments and questions plus the testimony!
APD Officer Robert Wong said he saw a gas mask behind the theater and knew it was not police equipment.
APD Officer Robert Wong said he picked up the gas mask near the exit to Theater 9.
@LisaReid: He said he initially thought it was his and put it on. He noticed it had a cord inside with some type of Blue Tooth headphones and that's when he knew it wasn't his.
APD Officer Robert Wong said he took off the mask and stood there to guard it.
