MANALAPAN, Fla. (AP) _ Vice President Joe Biden says “we weep for the families that lost their loved ones” in the Colorado movie theater shooting.

At an appearance Monday in Florida, Biden told a meeting of law enforcement officials that despite the shooting, there is, in his words, “a hell of a lot more good out there than the evil you’re sworn to take on.” Friday’s shooting near Denver killed 12 people and injured dozens more.

The vice president says the stories of heroes that have emerged from the shooting “remind us of the goodness” of the American people.

Biden spoke at the annual convention of the National Association of Police Organizations in Manalapan, Fla.
