Police Evacuate Area After Determining That the Suspect’s Apartment Is Booby Trapped
Dan Oates, Aurora Colorado police chief, spoke moments ago and said that the Colorado shooting suspect’s apartment is “booby trapped.” Police and bomb technicians have pictures of the trap and are trying to figure out how to disarm the flammable, explosive material. He said that police could be there for hours or days trying to determine how to get into the apartment and disarm the material.
Oates also said, “The pictures are pretty disturbing. It looks pretty sophisticated in terms of how it’s booby trapped.”
Police have evacuated five buildings in the area.
