Police have evacuated the area surrounding the apartment of the man suspected of shooting dead at least 12 people and wounding 50 others during a late-night screening of the new Batman movie as they reveal his home is booby-trapped.
James Holmes, 24, told officers he had explosives stored at his apartment when he was arrested after opening fire at random at the mall in Aurora, Colorado.
Police said they were forced to evacuate Holmes' apartment block, situated four miles from the scene of the horrific crime in North Aurora, and five surrounding buildings.
Investigation: Police use a video camera to look inside an apartment where the suspect in a shooting at a movie theatre lived in Aurora, Colo., Friday, July 20, 2012

Oates says pictures from inside the apartment are fairly disturbing and the devices look to be sophisticated.

I won't be ABC and saw who
But this guy was a Book Smart person who burned out and someone took advantage of him
notice how they worked the words “lone wolf” into it? BS. This was an attack on our air force academy cadets who were at the movie
Some men just want to watch the world burn.
It really makes me wonder if he was a real big fan of the Joker from “Dark Knight.”
wait, i thought he was Tea Party....?
As speculation mounts about the motive behind the mass shooting, one private investigator has said that Holmes may have been part of Occupy Wall Street’s most violent faction, Occupy Black Bloc.
Bill Warner told how the Batman movie portrays the OWS crowd in a negative vein, leading him to believe that may have been a cause behind the gunman’s rage.”
-— well now, this ought to put OWS is the light it deserves, huh?
How come we have to get our critical news from the English Press? Don’t we have any competent news media in this country who can get on the facts of a story fast? Oh, wait. Never mind...
Good grief. He’s a muslim! Nope, wait,,,he’s a Tea Party member! Nope, wait,,,he’s a registered democrat! Nope, wait,,,he may be a Occupy Black Bloc member!
Could he be one of the moon people?
I figured he might be part of Occupy when the leftist shrills started hinting he was Tea Party. Not saying there couldn’t be a kook associated with the Tea Party, doubtful as that seems, but Occupy is a violent, terrorist organization with thousands of members capable of mass murder. They are Democrats without respect for human life.
“Rush Limbaugh” listener
There must have been an accomplice
he blocked the door from closing
fox news watcher. /s
Oh I see... now that he is NOT a member ot a TEA Party and may possibly be connected to Occupy Wall Street (tm) he suddenly is a ‘lone wolf’
