(London Daily Mail) It is thought that one of the victims of James Holmes’ Dark Knight Colorado gun massacre might have died trying to stop the shooting.

Mourners at 26-year-old Jonathan Blunk’s funeral service have said they were told by officials there are indications that he tried to stand up to 24-year-old Holmes in the Aurora, movie theater on July 20th.

‘Law enforcement is leaning toward he was trying to get the (suspect’s) gun to save people’s lives,’ said Roland Lackey, an Air Force veteran who officiated the service. ‘He was a hero, and I salute him.’
