1y ago


Batman Movie Theater Shooting in Aurora, Colorado NY Police Commissioner said gunman told police he was The Joker Shooter James Holmes, 24, dropped out from neuroscience PhD at University of Colorado in June Holmes bought a movie ticket, entered with crowd and put on ballistic gear Set off smoke bomb then fired indiscriminately with as many as four guns 59 people injured including three-month-old baby and six-year-old At least 12 dead with youngest victim just 12 years old Aspiring sportscaster Jessica Ghawi among those killed Shooter listened to one techno song on repeat before shooting Questions over why young children and babies were at late-night screening Man was arrested without incident in a car park nearby and told the police that explosives were stored at his home Apartment block in north Aurora has been evacuated as police figure out how to disarm 'sophisticated' devices inside shooter's home This is the trail of blood left running from the door of the Colorado cinema where a drop-out PhD student killed 12 and wounded 59 in a shooting spree. An AR15 assault rifle can be seen discarded at the emergency exit of the cinema - where 24-year-old James Holmes is said to have stormed into the theatre and begun shooting. The bloody trail runs past Holmes's car in the parking lot where the reclusive former University of Colorado student was arrested without a fight after he murdered dozens inside the cinema in the town of Aurora. Holmes, 24, had painted his hair red and said he was The Joker - Batman's arch nemesis - before he tossed a gas canister into the late-night showing of the Dark Knight rises and began firing, according to New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. 'It clearly looks like a deranged individual,' Kelly said of the shooter at a news conference, CBS reported. 'He had his hair painted red. He said he was "The Joker", obviously the enemy of Batman.' A neighbour also reported that police, who were searching Holmes's apartment for explosives, asked him if he had seen 'a white guy with crazy hair, possibly dyed unnatural colors', the Denver Post said. It has also emerged that Holmes, who is accused of killing 12 and injuring 59 after buying a ticket to the film, had been studying at the University of Colorado's medical campus until June this year.
