James Holmes Where Life Imitates Art

July 20, 2012

Twelve people were killed and 59 were injured in Aurora, Colo., during a sold-out midnight premier of the new Batman movie “The Dark Knight  Rises” when 24-year-old James Holmes unloaded four weapons’ full of  ammunition into the unsuspecting crowd.

The number of casualties makes the incident the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Holmes, a graduate student at a nearby college with a clean arrest  record, entered the movie auditorium wearing a ballistics helmet,  bullet-proof vest, bullet-proof leggings, gas mask and gloves. He  detonated multiple smoke bombs, and then began firing at viewers in the  sold-out auditorium, police said today.

According to police sources, Holmes told the officers arresting him that he was “The Joker,” referring to the villain in the second installment  of the Batman movie trilogy, “The Dark Knight.” He also warned police  that he had booby-trapped his apartment, leading officers to evacuate  the Aurora apartment building.
