Accused movie theater gunman James Holmes was “relaxed” and “detached” when police confronted him just moments after he had allegedly killed 12 people and wounded dozens more in the Aurora, Colo., massacre, a police officer testified today.
A preliminary hearing for Holmes began today in Colorado, with victims and families present. One family member likened attending the hearing to having to “face the devil.”
The first two witnesses to take the stand were Aurora police officers who responded to the theater and spotted Holmes standing by his car at the rear of the theater.
