A survivor of the Colorado movie theater massacre is now home in North Carolina.

Derrick Poage, 22, reunited with his mom and family at RDU Thursday afternoon. Poage is from Hope Mills.

He and his girlfriend were inside the movie theater just feet away from the alleged gunman. Both escaped unharmed.

Poage will soon return to Colorado where he's been staying with his girlfriend. The two will go to college there in the fall.
