LawOfficer: Further Thoughts on Aurora

Was Holmes Planning for Police Victims? July 21, 2012

Members of law enforcement wearing body armor and helmets a “water shot” in the apartment of alleged gunman James Holmes.

As more details are coming out of Aurora, it appears that James Holmes may have had a plan to take out some police officers.

The first dispatch went out at 0039 hours, sending officers to the theater on a report of at least one shooting victim but with “hundreds” running around. By 0106 hours, police were releasing the name of James Holmes as the shooter. As a result of that contact, officers evacuated the complex where Holmes lived due to concerns there might be explosives in his apartment. This action probably saved numerous lives.
