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
Investigation: The Aurora bomb squad robot is deployed to search a suspect's car behind the Century 16 Theatre following a shooting during a Batman movie screening in Aurora, Colorado July 20, 2012
Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates says bomb technicians are determining how to disarm flammable or explosive material in the third-floor apartment. He says police could be there some time.
Oates says pictures from inside the apartment are fairly disturbing and the devices look to be sophisticated.

He’s a real cutie and so will likely get a huge member installed in his rear end when he gets to prison. One can only hope.
The government is just playing with this right now....until they get the PC crap right....especially all these "occupy" groups.
In other words, right now, you're being conned.
what makes you think he would consider that to be punishment?
Anyone think the movie will be pulled from theaters and the negative OWS part removed?
I could see that happening.
True about few able to go out, especially for a midnight movie. During my time you had to check in by 2:00 AM. My buddy and I got a rare Saturday night pass and went to Denver to see a late movie, on the weekend the clocks changed. We could never get an answer about 2:00 AM old time or new time, and had to miss the last 20 minutes of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid", much to the dismay of our dates.
Can’t confirm this but Mark Steyn in for Rush Limbaugh just said that this story line was actually one that appeared in Batman in the early 80’s: a guy who enters a movie theater and guns down theater-goers.
One of the theaters in Paris have canceled the showing of the movie,at least for now.
“Suspect In Colo. Theater Massacre Graduated From UC Riverside In 2010
(LOS ANGELES) CBS2 has confirmed that the suspect in Friday mornings shooting massacre at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater graduated from UC Riverside.
According to the universitys online alumni directory, James Holmes graduated 2010 with a degree in neuroscience....
...The University of Colorado Denver|Aschutz Medical Campus can confirm that Mr. James Holmes was in the process of withdrawing from the University of Colorado Denvers graduate program in neurosciences, the university said in a statement.
Holmes graduated from Westview High School in San Diego in 2006....”
Something about this whole thing stinks. He didn’t have the background to do this alone. Notice how fast the FBI is potentially getting involved? Yeah, Obambi’s nervous too.
Of course there is.
Now that it is out there that there is a connection to the Occupy Wall Street crowd, they have to diffuse that.
After all Obama, all the media, and the democrats slobbered all over the OWS movement as American as Apple Pie stuff.
Even with all the violence and rapes etc they must protect their minions.
They try to pin all this stuff on Conservatives because they hate what they stand for. You know, the Constitution, Militaty (sans homos) the American way of life as we have come to know and embrace it.
The guy looks like Dexter-spooky!
“But this guy was a Book Smart person who burned out and someone took advantage of him”
Maybe another FBI operation went awry.
His apartment looks like one we used to party in when I was at Lowry. Tryin’ to find a map....
I am probably wrong, I thought Aurora was closer to the academy, so sorry, got excited and went with it,
hmm - I’ll have to go back and see what I can find - I have most of the early 80’s run. The bane story came out mid-late 90’s.
May not be the same theater but I saw a couple of movies at plex near the Aurora mall back in ancient times when I was at Lowry.
You’re right. Is the shooter cracked in the head?
Otherwise, why plan the thing like he did and only think it through far enough to run into, what had to be, a parking lot crawling with police?
This guy is either totally cracked or else the plot was larger and he didn’t have time to finish?
I don’t get the way these lunatics figure things out!
LOL, well I guess it wouldn’t be if it was “consenting”. Somehow I doubt that it would be.
I agree. He was used to rally the American people against guns in advance of Obama’s signing of the U.N. gun control treaty. More than one witness is reporting that the killer received a phone call while in his seat, then exited the back of the theater. Did he have help bypassing the exit door for his way back in? We’ll never know. This rings too similar to the Jared Loughner incident. 0bama will make another ‘stadium speech’, with all his female, gay and Hispanic 0bamabots opening the ceremony. The killer’s cellphone tells all, but my guess is an agency with three initials will scrub the critical call.. Because it’s from them.
