Cowden's children survived.
Actor Christian Bale, star of "The Dark Night Rises," surprised residents in Aurora on Tuesday when he visited a memorial for the victims and met with survivors of the shooting spree, CNN affiliate KDVR reported.

Bale visited with little advance warning and also stopped by a makeshift memorial to victims near the movie theater that was showing "The Dark Knight Rises" when the gunfire erupted.

"Wow!!! "Like a marble through a small tube, the defect channels the bullet from Petra's nose through her brain. It turns slightly several times, and comes to rest at the rear of her brain. Anderson has started physical and speech therapy and is able to walk, talk and laugh, said Andrew Roblyer, a family friend.

And shooting victim Caleb Medley and his wife, Katie, welcomed newborn son Hugo Jackson Medley on Tuesday morning. Money are also streaming into, which is accepting donations for victims and relatives of the shooting. Hickenlooper said donors include Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, co-producers of "The Dark Knight Rises."

Janie Bowman-Hayes, assistant vice president of surgical services at sister hospital Swedish Medical Center, said she and co-workers were attending a luncheon at The Medical Center of Aurora to thank staff who tended to victims. An online campaign had urged Bale to visit survivors of the shooting.

Sources at Warner Bros. studios told CNN that the company made a "substantial" donation. James E. Holmes made his first court appearance on Monday. Holmes had booby-trapped his Aurora apartment with more than 30 homemade grenades and 10 gallons of gasoline, a law enforcement official who viewed video showing the apartment's interior has told CNN.
