AURORA, Colo. (AP) - Military officials say they're planning memorials for two members of the U.S. Armed Forces killed in a movie theater shooting in Colorado.


The Arapahoe County coroner has identified 27-year-old Navy sailor John Larimer and 29-year-old Air Force Reservist Jesse Childress, 29, as two of the 12 killed.


Navy Cmdr. Jeffrey Jakuboski says Larimer was a Navy cryptologist at nearby Buckley Air Force Base. Jakuboski says four other sailors were at the theater, including one who was injured and treated at the scene.


Larimer's family says they're working with the Navy to take his body back home to Crystal Lake, Ill.


Air Force Capt. Andrew Williams says Childress, of Thornton, Colo., was a cyber-systems operator based at Buckley. Another Air Force airman from the base was wounded during the shooting.
