DENVER - A survivor of the deadly shootings at a Colorado movie theater says he has forgiven the alleged gunman.
Denver Rescue Mission employee Pierce O'Farrill was shot three times in the attack Friday at an Aurora theater showing the new Batman movie.
O'Farrill was released from the hospital Wednesday.
James Holmes is accused of launching the attack that killed 12 people and injured 58.
O'Farrill tells The Denver Post that when he saw images of Holmes at his first court appearance Monday, he felt sorrow for Holmes.
O'Farrill says he wants to tell Holmes he forgives him and ask if he can pray for him.
Formal criminal charges haven't been filed against Holmes yet.
O'Farrill attended the movie with his friend Carey Rottman, who was shot in the leg.
Rottman is married to Jessica Thron, of Stillwater, Minn. The two met while attending Winona State University. They were married about three weeks before the shooting. O'Farrill performed the ceremony at Thron's family home near Stillwater. She did not go with to the movie that night.
