Police Looking for Second “Person of Interest” in Theater Shooting
KDVR Fox 31 Denver ^ | Saturday, July 22, 2012 | Justin Joseph

Posted on 07/21/2012 10:54:09 PM PDT by kristinn

Sources tell FOX31 Denver reporter Justin Joseph that a second man is now a person-of-interest in the Aurora theater shooting investigation. We are not disclosing his identity because he has not been charged.

Twelve people were killed and 58 injured early Friday when James Egan Holmes allegedly opened fire inside the crowded theater.

Neighbors of the person of interest say for the past two days there have been SWAT team and police cars in their alley and unmarked cars in street.

“He’s been there about a year,” said one neighbor.

Agents showed up again this morning.

“I woke up this morning with cops still here trying to look inside his home. At 5:00 a.m. cops showed-up and asked me about (him).”

Sources tell Justin Joseph someone made a call from the person of interest’s phone threatening violence if James Egan Holmes was not released from jail. That call prompted police to issue an alert to find and detain him.

CBS reported yesterday that friends said he was upset that he had to work at McDonalds, even though he had a degree in neuroscience.

Kristinn, what about the initial story about the guy who said he held the door against the gunman?

Witness Tried To Keep Door Closed On Theater Gunman

POSTED: 1:32 pm MDT July 20, 2012

"AURORA, Colo. -- One of the people fleeing a mass shooting at a midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" at a Denver-area movie theater says he tried to shut the door on the suspected gunman.

Twenty-three-year-old Eric Hunter says he and his friends made their way to an exit door after seeing smoke and hearing shots during the movie.

When they opened the door, Hunter says they saw two teenage girls -- one of whom had been shot in the mouth.

Hunter says he was about to close the door when he saw the shooter, dressed in a bullet-proof vest and a gas mask, approaching.

Hunter says he held the door closed and the gunman banged on it for about 10 seconds. Afraid that the shooter would start firing through the door, Hunter says he let it go and managed to get out of the theater.

Exits usually have alarms when opened. NO alarm?

There were 2 undercover officers usually in the audience. NO security?

Not to mention the money to buy all this.

This smells to high heaven.

Be wary of the media calling things what they aren't. Apparently he bought some type of vest at retail. So he had something that *looked* like a "bulletproof vest" but wasn't necessarily the real thing. The stores that sold him the stuff (I think was Bass Pro and Gander Mtn) listed what was sold.

Yeah, I know as well as anyone that the media doesn't have a clue and try their best to obfuscate these issues to push an agenda. My bad.

I guess deep down one wants to believe that they are receiving fairly accurate news which is almost never the case when it comes to these reports. Especially in the beginning... Always keep your guard up!

That scenario was my first thought; but the conspiracy folks would be disappointed.
But I was streaming KOA out of Denver while working Friday morning; and thought I heard them talking about looking for a second person.
Who knows. But let's all hope the facts come out and good police work gets everything discovered.

What I don’t get is the automatic assumption that the second person, if there is one, is “interesting”. What if he or, as the case may likely be, she, is dull?

The shooter was wearing a gas mask. Maybe he was saying allahu akbar. And, you don’t always have to yell it. Besides, the movie was still playing and the screaming would have started as people realized what was going on.

You’re missing the point. This doesn’t sound like at all like a Muslim terrorist strike; they want to let people know why they are doing what they are doing. There is nothing in this guy’s background that is known so far that would seem to indicate he had turned into some radical Islamist. That could change but I highly doubt it. I also doubt any OWS connection. I’m thinking Schizophrenia or some other psychotic break.

It may not have been a vanity plate. In my experience, the spaces themselves indicate vanity plates.

You why did you previously state: I believe this. The license plate is 119 ROC....as in COR 911. The date was 7/20. The event was the start of Ramadan.

Are you suggesting the Colorado DMV is part of this conspiracy and gave him this random non-vanity plate on purpose? Yea, 7/20 was the start of Ramadan, but 7/20 was also the opening of the new Batman movie and that along with his obsession with the Joker, seems a lot more relevant.

“You’re missing the point.”

No, I am not. At all. While this can be a psychotic break, yes, it will NOT be admitted whether this was a terrorist attack on US soil against a target that happened to include a number of military personnel. Never in an election year would 0bama admit any such thing—even if he were involved in it.

I refer you to the FBI warning of May, 2012, the Toronto mall attack, the India movie theater attack, “India: Movie theater bombing kills at least 6,” 10/14/2007
http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/2007-10-14-india-cinema-explosion_N.htm, and the Moscow theater attack, “Moscow Theater Hostage Crisis”
Date: 2002, https://sites.google.com/site/bioterrorbible/plots-patsies/moscow-theater-attack-2002

“Are you suggesting the Colorado DMV is part of this conspiracy and gave him this random non-vanity plate on purpose?”

The plate would have been requested. There are no laws against the number. But there is ethos in the selection. The date, 9/11, was chosen as a shiv to the now established US emergency call number, which happens to match several important Islamic events in history. AQ is big on dates.

I have made my statements in the positive, which you are choosing to ridicule. I have stated my position, with which you do not have to agree. But this young man, quite disturbed, can be a tool for more than political points in the US.

It would be imperative to cast aspersions on anyone who questions the official story now.

So, if the guy bought a ticket and walked in with all the others, people saw him with his red hair. There would be lots of witnesses who stood in line with the guy and couldn’t have helped but notice the red hair. Those lines are usually long, lots of time standing around doing nothing but crowd watching, lots of witnesses.

What the heck does someone with a degree on neuro science think that he is going to do, besides go to grad school?

Did Holmes apply to med school and not get in? Did he perhaps apply for jobs with pharmaceutical firms and get turned down?

It’s not the line for the tickets that is so long. You buy your ticket and THEN go stand in line. My kids dragged me to one of these openings once, not a midnight opening but a regular time opening. We had purchased our tickets on-line.

Oh, and there are alarms on the emergency exits and there were guards stationed in front of each emergency door.

Oh, and there was no way that we could get a parking spot anywhere near the theater. That was odd, also. I’m wondering if the car was illegally parked or parked there ahead of time, way ahead of time.

Never in an election year would 0bama admit any such thing—even if he were involved in it.

And how would have James Holmes have known that there would be “a number of military personnel” in the movie theater that night – was he checking ID’s at the door? He randomly shot at all sorts of people, young, old, little kids; he was completely indiscriminate in who he shot and he didn’t seem to be targeting military personnel and as far as I am aware, the few military folks in that theater that night were dressed in civilian clothes. Your supposition here makes no sense.

I refer you to the FBI warning of May, 2012, the Toronto mall attack, the India movie theater attack, “India: Movie theater bombing kills at least 6,” 10/14/2007

So? There are Homeland Security and FBI warnings all the time. If I took credence in every single one of them, I’d never, ever leave my house, would never take a train, a plane, go to the mall, go to a baseball game, go to the mall…... As far as the Toronto mall shooting, that was not the act of Islamic terrorists but that of rival gang members with innocent victims caught in the crossfire, innocent people in the wrong place at the wrong time.

“Are you suggesting the Colorado DMV is part of this conspiracy and gave him this random non-vanity plate on purpose?”

The plate would have been requested. There are no laws against the number. But there is ethos in the selection. The date, 9/11, was chosen as a shiv to the now established US emergency call number, which happens to match several important Islamic events in history. AQ is big on dates.

Sure except that there is no evidence what so ever that this was a “vanity plate”. It was just a random set of letters and numbers just as any other license plate. As I said previously I had a plate that had the letters WWF and later a plate that had the numbers 116 which if I flipped my car on the interstate would read 911! On the other hand and based on your very flawed logic, maybe the Left is right in claiming Holmes to be some sort of radical Christian Tea Party Member –COR – 911 could after all = Corinthians 9:11 “Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God”. (eye roll)

Not to mention that the date of 9-11 doesn’t seem to have any real meaning to the terrorists, any more than another number of other dates important on their calendar, except that it was the day they chose to carry out their act of terrorism, a Tuesday after a holiday being a day that flights were not heavily booked but a day when they found a lot of flights that fit their agenda. If they were looking for deeper meaning of a date on the calendar, they could have chose any number of other dates with more significance than 9-11, you would think according to you, they would have chosen 7-20.

I have made my statements in the positive, which you are choosing to ridicule. I have stated my position, with which you do not have to agree. But this young man, quite disturbed, can be a tool for more than political points in the US. It would be imperative to cast aspersions on anyone who questions the official story now.

I don’t disagree with you that this shooting will be spun for political purposes – the gun grabbers are already having a field day over this. And I’m not trying to ridicule you – you’re doing a pretty good job of doing that to yourself BTW. But you are all over the place – it’s not a vanity plate, it is a vanity plate, the plate had meaning except when it doesn’t, Holmes was targeting military personnel, (but as I pointed out, he wasn’t), he was disturbed but then he was the mindless and innocent tool of some bigger grander conspiracy – but then as a mindless tool he somehow chose his license plate number on purpose.

Again, the guy was sick, delusional and obsessed with the Batman comics and movies and especially with the dark character of the Joker. He chose 7/20 to carry out his plan, not because it was the start of Ramadan but because that was the date of the first mid-night showing of the movie. In his very sick and warped mind, he had actually become the Joker and what better place to come out than to a movie theater full of Batman fans. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

One young man who was seated down front said he saw someone go out that door to make a cell phone call . What was showing earlier in that theater,? Could the door lock have been taped so it would not latch? Could have been done ahead of time.

Did security cameras cover the parking area near that door?

1. How would someone know military would attend? Sheer location. Suggest looking at the military killed for indicators.

2. What about the importance of an FBI letter? I refer you to the letter of August 6th, 2001, and its impact on electronic traffic and security.

3. And the license plate? It may be, as you’ve suggested, something personal or irrelevant, but I stand by my beliefs.

As for 9/11 and its UN-importance, please consider the following bits of information as a preface to suggesting further reading. My apologies ahead of time, if you are already familiar with all of this.

The date, 9/11, is quite important in Islamic history: Jan Sobieski would beg to differ, as would I. Unimportant to the terrorists? You really want to go there? http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2006/09/other-september-11th.html

The Ottoman Turks almost took Europe twice, laying siege to and fighting at the gates of Vienna. Suleiman the Magnificent led the 1st attempt, 1529, not long after the fall of Constantinople in 1453. Of course, also playing into the defeat of the Turks the first time was another hero of Christendom, Vlad Tepes. http://www.donlinke.com/drakula/vlad.htm

It was the Battle of Lepanto, 1571, http://traditioninaction.org/History/A_001_Lepanto.html, followed by the unsuccessful siege of Vienna, by Kara Mustafa, which almost succeeded, had it not been for Jan III Sobieski, in opening the rest of Europe to Muslim conquest. Had both the naval battle succeeded and had Vienna fallen, this typing would not be taking place and the Western world would not have existed as it has. That was the high point of Islamic conquest—up until now.

With the establishment of the organization, 1928, after the fall of Ottoman Turkey and the rise of Ataturk, at the end of World War I, the Khilafa movement reorganized, first in Turkey, but moving quickly to the UK and now, to Hizb ut-Tahrir, the Party of Justice and Freedom, and the Muslim Brotherhood—the Ikhwan, http://www.ikhwanweb.com

Dates are key, and we are nearly overrun. http://sperryfiles.com/

Then again, the Aurora, Colorado, case is now sealed, and apparently was on July 20th. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/Re2909404/posts. You’ll not find John Doe #2, the Korean or anything else from anyone or anything that will not be sanctioned and bleached for prints on this case from now on.

I stand by what I stated way upthread.

1. How would someone know military would attend? Sheer location. Suggest looking at the military killed for indicators.

So. You can go just about anywhere in this country and find any number of active military personnel and active reservists. I was in a Sheetz store just the other day and there were three guys in fatigues, military reservists and there is no military base nearby for many miles. If Holmes wanted to specifically target those in the military, he could have chosen any number of much better targets than that particular movie theater. If his goal was to kill members of the military, then tell me why he shot a 6 year old girl to death?

2. What about the importance of an FBI letter? I refer you to the letter of August 6th, 2001, and its impact on electronic traffic and security.

M’kay. I’m not sure what your point is here or how this relates to the Aurora shooting but ….OK…

3. And the license plate? It may be, as you’ve suggested, something personal or irrelevant, but I stand by my beliefs.

So you are conceding it may be relevant but may also be irrelevant but with that even being such, that won’t change your mind because your mind is already made up. Again if you are going to look to numerology and symbolism in a license plate, then I could just as well submit that Holmes was a Christian Right Wing Radical because “COR 911” correlates to a Bible verse.

The rest of your post is mind boggling. 9-11 is a date that some things that are relevant to radical Islamists that may have meaning and symbolism to them (and BTW – you previously said that the symbolism of 9-11 had to do with the emergency number – but I digress as you have now changed your mind, once again.)

You can look to any date on the calendar and find some significance in that date, the events, births or deaths if you want:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_11

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_20

Again, for those of you from Rio Linda, there is nothing so far that indicates that Holmes was an Islamic terrorist or part of some vast left or right wing conspiracy. Everything we know so far indicates he was a deeply disturbed very sick individual acting alone; someone under delusions of grandeur who thought that acting out his fantasy of being the Joker during the midnight premiere of the latest Batman movie would fulfill his fantasy.

You stand by what you said upthread because contrary to any evidence, that’s what you want to believe. You are perhaps dangerously close to being more like Holmes or a DU’er or contributor to the Daily KOS than a rational, thoughtful and intelligent conservative.

Corbin Dates was in the Aurora Colorado theater and describes a man sitting in front of him. Then the man gets a call on his cellphone and goes to the back exit door. He then props the door open and Corbin describes that this man seems to be motioning to someone outside.

My original comment was a response to this comment:

“He must have converted recently.
The media probably wants to blame a white guy so they give out his birth name.

The other option is that the police originally were chasing a muslim who may have been the actual shooter. Holmes was probably the scape goat, a distraction, that’s why he gave up so easily.”

I believe this. The license plate is 119 ROC....as in COR 911. The date was 7/20. The event was the start of Ramadan.

Your original comment was this:

“First of all, if it was a Muslim terrorist, he mostly likely would have not been silent during the attack; he would have been yelling “Allah Akbar” and “Death to the Infidels”, would have blown himself as a martyr, his terrorist cell would be been claiming credit for it by now.

As far as the license plate; that’s not a vanity plate. Some years ago I had a license plate that started with WWF. People used to ask me if that was because I liked the World Wrestling Federation or the World Wildlife Fund. I know have a license plate that contains the numbers 116 but you know if you look at it upside down it says …….911….cue the scary music…. oooo…..I must be a muzzie.”

The last 10 words are insulting and meant to ridicule, given that I was remarking on a license plate that does have numbers which may be relevant.

Yet, the original story of the Aurora shooting that included the search for one Mohammad Alam, later, now has changed to a Korean name. Because we are not learning the facts of what actually occurred and the case records is now sealed, we will not know, and Holmes will be the official lone wolf case expected.

You questioned the reason for looking at authentication, then dismissed the proofs, themselves directly from the FBI, as of little value. The FBI memo of May of this year, specifically on warning of attacks on theaters, harken back to the memo warning of terror attacks, a memo from August of 2001.

Then again, you dismissed the reference to dates as meaningless to terrorists, which is patently absurd on its face, so I drafted a brief response specifically in regard to dates, numbers and their importance.

You are equivocating and may know it, bringing up the question, then, when presented with a response, dismissing it, even though the answers were in the responses..

I began responding, when in fact, you had originally wished to attack and infer that my thoughts are not worth your trouble. Don’t bother yourself again.

On the other hand, I do not attack FReepers.

Hiyas.

“He then props the door open and Corbin describes that this man seems to be motioning to someone outside.”

What? No. Hadn’t seen it. Thanks.

It’s been long enough since I have been to a movie that I don’t remember whether there are even handles on the outsides of the doors, being emergency doors and all. I don’t even know whether they can be propped open or not, as emergency doors, they shouldn’t be, or how a person could reopen one without help. Then again, I never heard whether the guy came out the same door he came in or not, or, if the guy was in the lobby, and so forth.

I began responding, when in fact, you had originally wished to attack and infer that my thoughts are not worth your trouble. Don’t bother yourself again.

On the other hand, I do not attack FReepers.

Take a big deep breath. I’m not “attacking you” or going out of my way to insult you. I’m only trying to have a reasoned and rational discussion with you. I’m only trying to point out that some of your positions lack reason and are sorely absent of any of the facts at hand. You seem intent to holding on to preconceived notions and make connections to some sort of vast conspiracy that is not supported by the evidence known so far. I’m only trying to point out to you that trying to connect Holmes and his deranged actions with Islam or the OWS groups for that matter; are really no different from the very loose and conspiracy minded folks on the left who are just as convinced that Holmes is a right wing Christian NRA loving gun nut case.

Saying that his random, non-vanity license plate number holds some sort of meaning and significance and connection to the Koran, is just as silly as something someone from the Daily Kos might say to claim that COR 911 is an reference to the Bible. Again I point out I’ve gotten some license plate letters and numbers, randomly assigned to me that might lead others to think I “chose” those letters because I’m a Wrestling fan or a member of the World Wild Fund, when in fact, I just like any other citizen, went to the DMV and got the random combination of letters and numbers on my license plate that they game me. Trying to say that his Colorado license plate number of 119 ROC spelled backward means, ROC 911 (and I’m not sure what ROC is supposed to mean, you would think that if it was supposed to be from the Koran as you seem to suggest, it should read KOR 911 not COR 911) but as you’ve already connected all the dots and made up your mind, rationality probably doesn’t matter much to you.

The youtube is from a TV news report.

I haven’t been to a movie theater since about 2002, and that was a very rare occurance. So I have no idea about movie theater exit doors myself.

In the early hours, there was word of a second suspect.

I may have missed it, but there has not been an explanation of how the killer got a phone call in the theater, which gave him a "logical excuse" to exit the theater and return fully armed.

Who called?

we buy our tickets online with fandango, and print them ourselves. then you don’t wait in line, you just hand to the guy who tells you which theater. now, a midnight showing on opening day? there might still be a line but theoretically you have you ticket you go on in and sit through all the blather before the previews.

They have probably changed the wording since I read it.

I just use “there” for all three. Easy to spell, no apostrophes, usually anyone but a complete dolt can figure out what I’m saying. You?

Luckily, down here in the South they all sound exactly the same. Its kinda like “thy air”. Just say it slow , even stretch it out a bit. Try it - its easy.

Sorry - jes cudn;t hep m’sef. Nite! ;-)

The opening that we went to, everyone had purchased tickets on-line or ahead, somehow, and the announced theater time was for the first theater, and the lines started filling up several hours ahead, the tickets were not for any specific theater, they just started filling them on a first come basis. This was one of those mega theaters, I don’t even know how many screenings they were doing, but it was a lot more than four or five. The theater was actually in Canada. We don’t have any of those mega theaters around here.

I guess it’s up to the theater. I pay a couple bucks extra for the online ticket but it’s very convenient (and the ticket actually says which theater- the one we go to has 18) and we always go Sunday afternoon because it’s cheaper at that location ($6). You’ll go broke on popcorn and drinks though....
When we left the theater, I noticed there was a cop in the hall outside the door.
