AURORA, Colo. - Multiple police agencies, including a swat team and bomb squad, were outside the apartment complex of a man suspected of killing 12 people and injuring over 50 others at an Aurora movie Theater.
Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said the apartment is booby trapped with flammable or explosive items.Oates called the devices, "very sophisticated" and "something I've never seen."
He said five buildings in the area have been evacuated.
Video from KMGH during the morning showed authorities removing glass from the windows and using small cameras to look inside.
The apartment is the home of 24-year-old James Holmes.
Police said Holmes walked into a crowded theater in Aurora and set off two devices with some type of irritant or smoke. He was dressed in all black and was wearing a ballistic helmet, tactical vest, throat protector, groin protector, black tactical gloves and a gas mask, police said.
The suspect had four weapons. In the theater he fired off an AR-15 rifle, a Remington shotgun and a 40-caliber Glock handgun, police said. Another 40-caliber Glock handgun was found in his white Hyundai.
KMGH has learned Holmes legally bought the firearms at a Bass Pro Shop and Gander Mountain Guns within the last several months. The first gun was bought in May.
Investigators said they have no idea how many rounds were fired, but that it was many.
Police said Holmes was arrested one minute to one and a half minutes after the first 911 call reporting the shooting at a theater in Aurora.Holmes is scheduled to appear in court in Arapahoe County Monday morning.
Witnesses said officers started pulling up to the apartment around 1 a.m. and then evacuated the building.
KMGH has learned that Holmes lived in apartment 10.
Police said they are confident that Holmes acted alone, but they said they will do a through investigation to confirm that.
Police in San Diego said Holmes' family is very upset."It has taken everyone by surprise," said an officer outside the family's home.Investigators said the family is cooperating with law enforcement in San Diego and Colorado.
"I need to call police and I need to fly out to Colorado," said Arlene Holmes during that call. Holmes' father left the family home and is flying to Denver.
The KMGH Investigators have learned Holmes moved from San Diego to Colorado about a year ago. His mother told reporters in San Diego that her son moved to Colorado to pursue a PhD.CU-Denver confirmed that Holmes took classes for one year and was in the process of withdrawing from the graduate program in neurosciences.
Records show he graduated from the University of California - Riverside in 2010 with a bachelors of science in neuroscience.Aurora police said Holmes did not have a criminal record. They said he had one traffic summons for speeding last Fall.
