    Just three weeks before James Holmes killed 12 and wounded 58 in a shooting rampage at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises, he was banned from the University of Colorado campus. Prosecutors at Holmes’s hearing say the alleged shooter made threats that were reported to the police and resulted in his being barred from campus and the revocation of his campus key card. The university’s actions reportedly occurred around the time Holmes failed his departmental oral exams for neuroscience. Prosecution and defense lawyers continue to argue over whether the notebook Holmes mailed to his psychiatrist should be allowed as evidence. Holmes faces 24 counts of first-degree murder and 116 counts of attempted murder.
