UPDATE: CENTENNIAL, Colo. - The man suspected of killing 12 people and wounding 58 others in a shooting spree at a movie theater in Colorado showed little emotion today in his first court appearance.
24-year-old James Holmes was frowning and unshaven with reddish orange hair when he entered the courtroom. As the judge spoke, he went from wide eyed to his eyes drooping shut.
Holmes left the hearing in handcuffs. The judge plans to formally charge him on Monday, July 30th.
Authorities say the 24-year-old former graduate student is refusing to cooperate, and it could take months to learn what prompted the horrific attack on moviegoers at a midnight screening of the latest Batman film.
Investigators say they found a Batman mask inside Holmes' booby-trapped apartment after the attack.
Holmes has been held in solitary confinement since Friday.
AURORA, Colo. - Aurora Police believe 24-year-old James Holmes is responsible for the mass shooting at a movie theatre just after midnight Friday morning.
Police say 12 people are dead and 50 injured following a shooting at a movie theatre in Aurora, CO. Officers say the gunman opened fire shortly after midnight local time in a theatre during the showing of the latest Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises."
Witnesses tell police that before the gunman started shooting, he released some sort of canister that made a hissing sound, and then gas emerged.
Officials say police, ambulances and emergency crews swarmed the scene after frantic calls started flooding the 911 switchboard.
Police found the gunman near a car behind the theater and took him into custody.
