James Holmes Identified as Colorado Shooting Suspect

by at . Comments

James Holmes has been identified as the suspect who opened fire inside a Colorado movie theater early this morning, injuring over 50 attendees and killing at least 12 people on hand to watch a screening of The Dark Knight Rises.

The 24-year old is in police custody.

Sources say Holmes is a former University of Colorado School of Medicine student who dropped out last month. He does not have a criminal record, nor does he appear to possess ties to any terrorist organization.

Authorities raided Holmes' Denver-area apartment today and reportedly found what appeared to be "buckets of extra ammunition" and some kind of chemical inside his home.

Eerily enough, a woman from California called in to ABC News a short while ago and confirmed that Holmes, her son, is almost definitely the culprit.

"You have the right person," the San Diego resident said, adding that she would be calling the police and flying to Colorado.

In the wake of this tragedy, Warner Bros. has canceled the Paris red carpet premiere of The Dark Knight Rises tonight and sent out its thoughts and prayers to the families of the victims.

UPDATE: The University of Colorado has released the following photo of James Holmes:

Unbelievable=B-witch in disguise


You bitches bashin obama.blamin him.guess you blame bush for 9-11.blame bush too for the denver other mass killing.hello bitches your racist


Look out! It's "The Bitching Hour"! I'm skeered! Hahhahahahahaha!


Matt-bitch you need to get a play station.and on the other postin sites when your so called trolls put me down its only one troll doin it-you.


first of all if your from another country your opinion borders meaningless especially political opinion. 2nd of all usually an IP infraction, even in another country is of interest for the simple reason the person could be commiting similar acts in their own country, fraud, credit card theft and so on. yes I think there could be more to it than meets the eye. as far as ranting about ones ethnicity, religion, sexual preference/ welcome to American. Free speech- if you were from here you would know that. In britian they have no such thing. I've heard of ministers getting arrested over there for hate speech when they were only quoting the bible. CheereO


Still... No user... Don't know who I'm talking to. Do you know who u are? You know what I have noticed. When one of you leaves- ALL OF YOU LEAVE! THAT IN ITSELF TELLS ME WHAT I NEED TO KNOW. OHHHHH.. there may be a troll tagging along trying to catch up at times-BUT STILL.... We are NOT... talking conglomerate of Trolls are we? It's Saturday- Go get your lucky charms sissy and watch cartoons. I have no time for you and you can't afford a conviction.


You tell me all this and you can't even post your user name?You call me weak? Tells me all I need to know. Again- how you displayed yourself with Manny & White was Low.. Very low. FYI- IT'S A GLOBAL WORLD YOU KNOW!


@Daina- your are correct- The Prez decides when to come out- WHITE Cop with Black Harvard Professor, White Zimmerman and now Colorado. In the beginning of this thread you can see Manny (Troll) White(Troll) & the things they said in regards to this horrible incident. Even war enemies are obedient enough to draw the line at times. You Trolls are sick and you have no respect for humanity on a day like yesterday. You are soulless. As far as IP address- you may want to look at laws for identity theft. The penalties that can be severe. So- with that being said should anything go upside down we will know exactly where to start. I do hope you understand. I hope all your usernames understand.


i am so sorry for the loss off all the innocent lives.


Janet and Trollies: No one here on this site is doing anything different username-wise than YOU do. Matter-of-fact, you are the ones who created the example of multiple usernames. Thanks, Teach! You're all so pathetic. You know something? You go on about IP address search (supposedly) and somehow you feel that gives you some semblance of superiority? I found a site that you can type in people's usernames and it brings up their personal info. including photos of where they live and one brought up somebody's photo on here. So, please, IP searches pale in comparison. I think the important thing is to respect people's privacy. If you don't like Matt or whoever? Big a girl(s) and just ignore him. Stop behaving like Jr. High kids.
