Reporter gets tweets mentioning theater shooting


A pediatric cardiologist in Arizona is being investigated by his employer over tweets to a Denver Post reporter who was friends with a woman killed in the Colorado theater shooting.

According to KUSA-TV in Denver reporter Adrian Dater retweeted the comments that appear to have been in response to something he wrote about the Phoenix Coyotes hockey team.

The Twitter user BabyDocScott tweeted "Go catch a movie in Aurora" and said Dater could "join Jessica for all I care." Dater was friends with Jessica Ghawi, who was killed in the Aurora movie theater shootings July 20.

Dr. Scott Schnee at Banner Health in Phoenix didn't return a call from KUSA, and his Twitter account is now disabled.

Banner Health issued a statement saying it's gathering information.
