University of Colorado Evacuates Two Research Buildings After Shooting
On Studio B with Shepard Smith, Adam Housley reported that two research buildings at the University of Colorado’s medical center have been evacuated following last night’s shooting. The suspect in the shooting, James Holmes, had worked in these areas on the university’s campus, and lived only a few blocks down the road.
Police do not think there are any bombs or incendiary devices planted inside the buildings, but they’re sending in bomb-sniffing dogs as a precautionary measure. Law enforcement isn’t taking any chances at the suspect’s apartment either, which reportedly contains canisters of liquid intertwined with wires, and what authorities believe are trigger devices and booby traps.
Housley, who was on scene in Aurora, also reported on the statements of certain witnesses, some of whom claim to have seen the suspect holding the theater’s exit doors shut, perhaps trying to prevent anyone from fleeing. Other witnesses claim to have seen the suspect reenter the theater after briefly leaving, causing them to hit the floor and play dead as the suspect calmly walked back through the theater’s aisles.
