Was the Batman movie shooting imitated from scene in 1986 comic?
:1986c:

The horrific shooting at the screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Colorado late last night bears eerie similarities to a scene in the 1986 comic Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. In the comic, a crazed, gun-toting loner walks into a movie theater and begins shooting it up, killing three in the process. The passage concludes with the media blaming Batman for inspiring the shooting, though he is not involved in the incident at all.

I don't think so. At least not specifically.

There are what, five or six decades of monthly comics? I'm betting the idea has been shown a few times.

Unless we can find some reference to the scene in the shooters things (computer or papers) I doubt we should look too hard at any one comic book. (Oh, the series, but the individual comic is likely a bit obscure.)
