Aurora Suspect Made Threat Months Prior
The man accused of opening fire on an Aurora movie theater told a classmate he wanted to kill people four months before the shooting. Prosecutors made the allegation in a motion released Friday. They are now seeking access to James Holmes' records from the University of Colorado Denver's neuroscience graduate program. Holmes "had conversations with a classmate about wanting to kill people in March 2012, and that he would do so when his life was over," attorneys for the state wrote, but no student has been identified yet. That alleged conversation would have occurred at roughly the same time that police have said Holmes began receiving "a high volume of deliveries" at his home and at the university.
