PHOENIX -- The father of one of the victims in the Colorado movie theater shooting says he’s touched by all the support he’s received.

John Boik’s 18-year-old son Alexander “AJ” Boik was among the people 12 people killed on July 20 during a showing of the Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises.”

“It’s nice to see people that don’t know your son come and give thanks, flowers,” said Boik.

Boik moved to the Valley 14 years ago following a divorce, but he remained active in his sons’ lives. Boik also has a son who is 22-years-old.
