Authorities on Saturday removed
dangerous explosive materials from inside James Holmes’ suburban
Denver apartment a day after police said he opened fire and set off
gas canisters in a suburban theater minutes into the premiere of the
Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises.” The attack left 12
people dead and 58 injured.
His apartment was rigged with jars of
liquids, explosives and chemicals that were booby trapped to kill
“whoever entered it,” Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said,
noting it would have likely been one of his officers.
All hazards have been removed from the
Holmes’ apartment and residents in surrounding buildings can return
home, police said.
