The Associated Press reports the Pentagon is not releasing the names of those injured in the attacks:

Pentagon press secretary George Little says it’s not yet clear how many military casualties there were, or whether they were deaths or injuries. Marine Col. Dave Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman, says initial indications are that the suspect, James Holmes, was not a member of the military. The FBI says there is no indication the shooting is tied to any terrorist groups.

NBC News reports that three U.S. service members from multiple branches of the military were wounded in the attack by gunman James Holmes on late-night moviegoers.
