Aurora Massacre: The Victims' Stories

Learn about the lives of the 12 people gunned down at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises

Alex Teves, 24

Phoenix native Teves had hoped to parlay his new master's degree from the University of Denver into a career as a psychiatrist. Like Blunk and McQuinn, he lost his life saving his girlfriend. Teves pushed Amanda Lindgren to the floor so she wouldn't get hit, but he was fatally wounded. "It's like Alex didn't even hesitate," Lindgren told ABC News. "He held me down and he covered my head and he said, 'Shh. Stay down. It's OK. Shh just stay down.' So I did. … He was my angel that night, but he was my angel every day I knew him."
