Dr Lynne Fenton notified a so-called threat-assessment team
at the University of Colorado, Denver, in early June that she
was alarmed by the behavior of James Holmes, but no further
action was taken, the Denver Post reported, citing an anonymous
source. Reuters could not immediately confirm the report.

Holmes, 24, was charged on Monday, July 30, with 24 counts of
first-degree murder and 116 counts of attempted murder in the
shooting at a midnight screening of the latest “Batman” movie in
suburban Denver, one of the worst outbursts of U.S. gun violence
in recent years.

Court papers filed by defense attorneys last week said
Holmes, a former neuroscience student at the university’s
Anschutz Medical Campus, had been a patient of Fenton, who is
medical director for student mental health services on campus.
