Police: ‘Calculation’ Found in Shooting

The shooting inside a crowded Colorado movie theater has evidence of calculation and deliberation, Aurora Police Chief Daniel Oates told reporters. Alleged shooter James Holmes had ordered more than 6,000 rounds of ammunition along with tactical gear online over the past two months. Holmes’ apartment was rigged with various explosives and booby traps. “We have the evidence of a deliberative process to commit this assault, and we have the evidence of a deliberative process in his mind to attack whoever opened the door of his apartment,” Oates said. The suspect’s family released a statement requesting privacy for the family. “Our hearts go out to those who were involved in this tragedy and to the families and friends of those involved,” the statement said. “We are still trying to process this information.”
