Flags flew at half-staff across Colorado on Tuesday as mourners gathered at a Denver church to pay tribute to the youngest victim of the Aurora theater massacre.
Services for 6-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan were being held at the Church of the Risen Christ in Denver, followed by a private funeral for the family, according to local media reports.
Veronica was one of 12 people killed in the July 20 shooting at an Aurora movie theater showing the latest Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises."
Her mother, Ashley Moser, was among dozens of theater-goers wounded. She was shot several times and left paralyzed, and also miscarried a pregnancy as a result. She remains at a local rehabilitation center.
Funeral plans for Veronica were delayed while Moser underwent rehab.
James Holmes, 24, a former Ph.D. neuroscience student, is accused of being the theater shooter.
Gov. John Hickenlooper ordered flags be lowered to half-staff on Tuesday in memory of Veronica.
Flags were lowered in the days after the shooting in memory of those killed in the theater and raised again July 29 after the last scheduled funeral. The governor announced at the time he would lower flags again when the funeral for Veronica was set.
The family recently suffered another tragedy when someone stole a camera with the last photos taken of Veronica. The girl’s grandfather, Robert Sullivan, has said burglars broke into his west Denver home earlier this month and stole money, jewelry and cameras, including one with a memory card with photographs of his slain granddaughter.
Nearly $5 million raised for the victims of the theater massacre will be distributed next month. The bulk of the money will go to the families of the 12 people who died and to those most gravely wounded.
Separately, a website has been set up to accept donations for Ashley Moser.
