UPDATE: Colorado shooting suspect James Holmes is due in court Monday, July 23, at 9:30 a.m. MDT. He’ll be present for a hearing where the charges of suspicion of first-degree murder will be read.
It’s believed that Holmes had been receiving deliveries of explosive devices for about four months, suggesting months of “calculation and deliberation” — and that he attempted to rig his apartment with them to kill whomever would enter.
FBI Agent Frank Yacone states that Holmes’ apartment “was an extremely dangerous environment,” prior to police involvement, and that the disarming of the explosives “went very, very well.” Still, Yacone admits that “the threat has not been completely eliminated.” The police are working to ensure that no further tragedies take place.
The living quarters surrounding Holmes’ have been evacuated, but residents will be allowed back into their homes on Sunday.
