The network evening newscasts are dispatching anchors to
Colorado in the wake of the deadly shootings at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater
early Friday morning.

Evening News
live from there Friday night, as well as a special edition of 48 Hours at 8 p.m. ET. CBS News correspondent Barry Petersen
has been on the ground. The network's morning show, CBS This Morning,
additionally stayed live with coverage on the East Coast in the 9 a.m. hour
