DENVER (AP) — A mediator says the families the 12 people killed and people who suffered permanent injuries will get the majority of the $5 million donated to help the victims of the July 20 shooting at a suburban Denver movie theater.
Kenneth Feinberg said Monday those victims will get 70 percent of the money, or about $200,000 each, based on current donations.
The rest will go to people who suffered physical injuries, based on the number of days they were hospitalized.
There were 58 people wounded in the attack.
Feinberg said due to limited funds, victims who did not require overnight hospitalization and claims for mental trauma will not be compensated.
Former University of Colorado-Denver graduate student James Holmes is charged with launching the attack during a Batman movie.
