Aurora Shooting: Suspect Opens Fire At Colorado Movie Theater, Killing 12

~Snipped~

"This is a horrific event," Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said during a news conference.

The gunman, who was wearing a gas mask, reportedly set off a smoke or tear gas bomb then walked up to the front of the screen in one of the theaters and opened fire.

When the movie patrons realized the attack was real and not part of the movie, pandemonium erupted and they began to flee. The film continued to play on the screen as bloodied customers took refuge outside. According to witnesses on the scene, some of the bullets also went through the walls of an adjacent theater, injuring patrons.

“There was this one guy on all fours crawling. There was this girl spitting up blood. There were bullet holes in some people’s backs, in some people’s arms. There was one guy who was just stripped down to his boxers. It looked like he had been shot in the back or something,” Donovan Tate, who escaped from the packed theater with his girlfriend, told CBS4.

The apartment of the suspect in custody, named as James Holmes, 24, who had been a student at the University of Colorado Medical School, had been booby-trapped with what police described as sophisticated explosives or flammable material, and officers were trying to determine how to defuse the device or devices, Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said. The area had been evacuated, and police were expected to remain on the scene "for hours or days," he said.

Aurora theater shooting

~Snipped~

The suspect booby-trapped his Aurora apartment with sophisticated explosives, Oates told reporters.

"We are trying to determine how to disarm the flammable or explosive material. We could be here for hours or days," Oates said. "The pictures are fairly disturbing. It looks very sophisticated, how it's booby-trapped. It could be a very long wait."

Police lifted to his third-floor window by a crane searched the suspect's apartment building with a remote camera.

Firefighters, police and sheriff's deputies from several jurisdictions swarmed the scene with heavy weaponry and trucks from the bomb squad.

James Holmes Identified As Alleged Aurora, Colorado Theater Shooter That Left 12 Dead (PHOTOS, LIVEBLOG)

By THOMAS PEIPERT 07/20/12 08:40 AM ET

(VIDEO)

AURORA, Colo. -- A gunman wearing a gas mask set off an unknown gas and fired into a crowded movie theater in suburban Denver at a midnight opening of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises," killing 12 people and injuring at least 50 others, authorities said.

Moviegoers didn't know what was happening and some thought the attack was part of the show. Then they saw a silhouette of a person in the smoke at the front of the theater near the screen, pointing a gun at the crowd.

"I told my friend `we've got to get out of here,' but then he shot people trying to go out the exits," Jennifer Seeger told NBC's "Today." She said the shooter made his way up the aisle, firing as he went, saying nothing.

By Mariano Castillo, CNN
updated 10:45 PM EDT, Fri July 20, 2012

(CNN) -- The 24-year-old man police say opened fire early Friday on a movie audience was a doctoral student at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora.

Suspected gunman James Eagan Holmes was in the school's doctoral neuroscience program and was in the process of withdrawing at the time of the shooting, university officials said. Holmes had enrolled at the university in June 2011.

"As a grad student you have an opportunity to work for the university in the research program for the programs that you're studying," university spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery said. "He worked in the neurosciences program. It is a paid position."

I can't listen to any more of those 911 calls...I just watched an interview with one of the victims in the hospital. He played dead as the shooter made his way up the aisle. He was shot in the leg and shoulder.

This just leaves you heartsick. Does anyone know why the mother of this person said immediately "you have the right person"? I heard that initially but have not heard anything about that since.
This guy is about the right age for schizophrenia to surface if its going to. I am not giving him an excuse, but it will be interesting to find out if that is in the mix. His boobytrapped apartment is another disaster. I have cnn/live on, there is no audio, but I think they are deciding how to proceed with this. The people that live in that building and surrounding buildings are banned from their homes until further notice. If this doesn't go well, the homes could all go up in an explosion. It is just mind-boggling. One guy....so many victims.

The family of a Crystal Lake man who was in the Navy says he is one of the people who was killed in the Colorado shootings.

Sad Oh man, the above one was bad enough, then I see this one. I'm not reading anymore after this one. Can't do it.

6-year-old girl confirmed to have been killed in Colorado theater shootings

By M. Alex Johnson and Dax Tejera, NBC News

Updated at 12:54 p.m. ET: As victims and relatives began to return Saturday to the theater where a gunman killed 12 people in Aurora, Colo., a 6-year-old girl was confirmed to have been among the victims.

snipped:

Military authorities identified another victim Saturday, confirming that Petty Officer Third Class John Larimer, 27, died from injuries he sustained in the shootings.

"He was an outstanding shipmate," Cmdr. Jeffrey Jakuboski, Larimer's commanding officer, told Navy News Service. "A valued member of our Navy team, he will be missed by all who knew him."

Christian Bale: My heart aches for victims

July 21, 2012, 2:52 PM EST

NEW YORK (AP) -- "The Dark Knight Rises" star Christian Bale said Saturday that his heart goes out to the victims of the Colorado shootings, a tragedy that brought Hollywood studios together in a rare show of solidarity as they opted to give the weekend box-office a rest.

"Words cannot express the horror that I feel," Bale, who plays the caped crusader in the film, said in a statement. "I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them."

His eyes look really buggy.Reminds me of the shooter in the Gifford case. I wonder if they are are on psychotropic drugs or something.

BTW, I just heard tonight, the judge who died in the Gifford case: he was calling for an investigation of the Fast And Furious.

Now, in 5 days, he UN is calling for a vote to outlaw all guns in the hands of civilians in all nations. (Canada is seeing unprecedented rise in shootings and bizarre murders. Guns are not allowed in Canada.)

What is bizarre, in these cases, including the zombie cases, is how passive the shooters are AFTER the shootings. They are supposedly so full of anger and rage and then they go passive? Turn themselves in with no resitance? This is rather hinky, IMO. (Thinking of the shooting in Norway? Sweden? as well. )

What is rather odd is how quickly LE respond. Had this been a home invasion or a liquor store robbery, the perp would be dead or the response time would be longer.

Also, reports are Holmes was unemployed and rec cash for working at college, and some sort of govt assistance. So how was he able to afford all the expenses incurred in this shooting? It is estimated over 20 thousand had to be paid for the vest, tear gas, ammo, guns, tear gas masks, the rigging out of his apart with all the different explosive devices.

And, why, when he DID have such a gunpower advantage did he calmly, meekly turn himself in? He never bothered to resist.

These cases are getting stranger and stranger.

Another thing of interest was the timing.
This was the first showing of this movie.
How would he know to walk in an start firing the guns just as that was playing across the screen?

I was thinking of the 20 minutes in thing because that's a big thing in scriptwriting. At 20 minutes you have to establish a big dramatic hook or you lose the audience. It's taught in all film schools, but who knows if he knew that.
What's really odd is that he was studying RNA analysis for gene markers for mental illnesses. In recent years they have been able to note striking differences in gene markers for schizophrenia from only blood samples. He was at the age where it strikes men full blown. He may have seen it coming and instead of getting help decided to go out in a blaze.
In terms of not trying to get away- if he had, it would have been well planned as everything else. This was his last act as the free man, he decided being behind bars was the price he had to pay for the infamy he will now enjoy.
Sometimes I wish we were like other countries and didnt let these kinds of people have pics and personal stories over the news. He's enjoying spitting on people and enlarging the story from his cell right now.
