(CBS/AP) "Dark Knight Rises" star Christian Bale is in Colorado visiting victims of Friday's mass shooting that left 12 dead and dozens more injured.

Photos of Bale at area hospitals have cropped up on Facebook and Twitter.

According to The Denver Post, a Warner Bros. executive said, "Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers."

In the wake of the shooting, Bale released a statement saying, "Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them."

Other members of the cast and crew, including Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman and director Christopher Nolan, have also issued statements expressing their sympathy.

Warner Bros. canceled the Paris premiere of the film that had been scheduled to take place Friday night and, along with other movie studios, withheld box office reports over the weekend.

Late Monday, Warner Bros. announced it was making a "substantial" yet undisclosed donation to victims of the shooting.
