New Information Emerges on Colorado Shooting Suspect
New information on the suspect in the Colorado shootings has just emerged.
Trace Gallagher reports that the suspect, James Holmes, dropped out of the University of Colorado about a month ago, where he was studying neuroscience. Holmes previously earned an undergraduate degree from the University of California, Riverside. It’s unclear whether his education would have given him experience with chemicals or explosives.
The suspect was also carrying four firearms — a semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun and two handguns — despite having no concealed weapons permits, no hunting or fishing licenses, and no ties to the military. The suspect’s apartment was also found to contain “buckets and buckets” of ammunition.

Police, fire fighters and bomb squads are currently investigating bottles of liquid found at his apartment. They plan to dispatch a robot to further investigate the booby traps, including the liquid-filled bottles and trip wires.
The suspect, who initially gave the police information about bombs in his apartment, has since stopped coopering with police. He is expected to appear in court on Monday.
