AURORA, Colo. (AP) - Relatives have identified a U.S. Navy sailor as one of the victims killed by a gunman at a Colorado screening of the new Batman movie.

The parents of John Larimer released a statement that Navy officials notified them about midnight that their 27-year-old son was one of the 12 killed in the shootings at the Aurora movie theater.

The family says that Larimer's brother Noel is working with the Navy to bring his body back home to Crystal Lake, Ill.

The Navy says another sailor was treated and released for injuries sustained at the theater. Both were from a unit that belongs to U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. Tenth Fleet at Buckley Air Force.

Larimer is the fourth victim identified by family members so far.
