No Second Suspect In Colorado Shooting! Police Interview 'Associate' Of James Holmes.

associate colorado shooter interviewed authorities

Well, we wouldn't exactly call this a relief, but it is on the more positive side of news coming from this travesty.

After reports circulated that Colorado shooter James Holmes, who open fired on a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, may have had some sort of accomplice in the murder or 12 and injury of 58, the Aurora Police Department have come forward to deny that the young man, a classmate in the doctorate program, is not a person-of-interest, but instead merely an "associate" that they had previously been unable to get in touch with.

According to spokesperson from authorities:

"There are multiple unconfirmed and inaccurate news reports about a second suspect. In regards to those reports: An associate of Holmes was interviewed this evening. There is no reason to believe that he is involved. Further details of this investigation will not be released at this time."

Meanwhile, it's now been confirmed that the AR-15 assault rifle, Remmington 12-guage shotgun, 40-caliber glock handgun, and the 40-caliber glock that Holmes was carrying at the time of the attack were all obtained by him legally.

Disgusting.

He'll be appearing in court tomorrow morning, and hopefully by then authorities will have some answers.

Unfortunately, we doubt that anything revealed will ever bring closure or peace to those affected by this horrific and pointless act of unfathomable violence.

    If he suspected Holmes was insane or had assault weapons and didn't blow the whistle on him, he was an accomplice.

    Re: litnight – I agree. While I would hate to live in a society where neighbors spy on neighbors, if you really feel someone is dangerous, you should notify the authorities.

    Re: litnight – I also agree. Assuming this is someone he had a close friendship with, he may have noticed something starting to be off about James and knew he possessed firearms, but didn't think it was anything to bring attention to. However, this type of incident is the exact result of the constant underestimating of mental illness in this country. Someone should ALWAYS speak up if they notice something out of the ordinary with others, even if it's done anonymously. It could have prevented this whole thing from happening whether the guns had already been purchased or not.

    disgusting? what he did, yeah i'll agree to that in a heartbeat, the guys scum, society better off w/o him but as far as him acquiring the weapons legally, would you rather the only ppl with guns were the criminals?



  5. 5

    I can't see any situation where it should be legal to obtain 4 firearms. America needs to sort out it's gun laws.

    Re: funkmotron – Except for the fact that they were legally obtained makes the government at fault almost as much as he was. Overlook the possibility of severe mental illness and hand any kind of gun over to anyone with a clean criminal background. Just like with the Arizona and V-Tech shooters. They basically gave him the go-ahead to do it. I'd rather it have been done by illegally obtained weapons if it absolutely HAD to happen (though, it wouldn't have if the laws required psychiatric evaluations because they would have caught something with him in time to get him help before anything happened), that way we would know it wasn't a mass shooting that the gun laws allowed to happen… Again. It's happened at least 3 times in the last 5 years, not including the other incidents with less fatalities and injuries in that time frame. Ask survivors of those incidents (such as myself), and most will say more needs to be done with the laws.

    there was an initial interview with a person in the front row who reported that the person next to him received a phone call, and that person, got up, walked to exit door, saw him open it and got off phone and came back in and sat down. are you telling me that was random??? how the hell does someone get in a locked exit door?? this person reported that the gunman followed in seconds after ward. even if this person had no idea what was going to happen, they should step forward. again, how does someone get in a locked exit door at a movie theater? this person left an opening for him to get in. too coincidental to be left unhinged by mistake. seriously.

    IF THE SHOOTER WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT VERY ONE HAD A GUN , HE WOULD HAVE NOT DONE THIS COWARDLY ACT AND TO SUPPORT MY CLAIM . HE HAD GUNS .BUT DID NOT OPEN FIRE ON THE POLICE ,BECUSE HE DID,NT WANT TO DIE LIKE THE OLD MAN IN FL. WHO TOOK ON ROBBERS WITH HIS OWN GUN HE HAD ON HIM, THEY TO TURN TAIL AND RAN

    I read that he bought a ticket and sat down and shortly thereafter used the emergency exit to get to his car and weapons and left the emergency door propped open, so that is how he got in a door that is normally locked from the outside.
