Shooting Suspect's Neighbors Describe the Night They Were Evacuated and Music Playing From the Booby Trapped Apartment
The neighbors who live directly below shooting suspect James Holmes’ apartment spoke to Jon Scott. They said around midnight, they heard techno music blaring. Aurora police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson said the booby trap was set up to kill the person opening the door, saying, “This is some serious stuff that our team is dealing with.”
The woman who went to Holmes’ apartment to ask the person living there to turn down the music, said she almost opened the door when no one answered. Kaitlyn Fonzi reacted to the
police sergeant’s words, telling Scott, “That takes me back a little bit – that, that’s scary.”
Fonzi said her boyfriend Chris Rodriquez had warned her not to go upstairs in the first place, and to let the police handle the noise situation. Rodriquez said his first instinct when they heard the music, which they say was an unusual occurrence, was to let the non-emergency police deal with it.
