Aurora Police Looking for “Person of Interest” in James Holmes Aurora Movie Shooting Rampage

Fox31 Denver is reporting that police are looking for a second man, now classified as a person of interest, in James Holmes Aurora movie shooting rampage. They are not disclosing his identity because he has not been charged. Twelve people were killed, 58 wounded, when James Eagan Holmes opened fire in a crowded theater at the premiere of new Batman movie, “Dark Knight Rises.” Among the dead are Micayla Medek, six year old Veronica Moser-Sullivan, Jon Blunk, Alexander Boik, Alex Sullivan, Gordon Cowden and U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Jesse Childress.

Neighbors of the person of interest say for the past two days there have been SWAT team and police cars in their alley and unmarked cars in street.

“He’s been there about a year,” said one neighbor. Agents showed up again this morning. “I woke up this morning with cops still here trying to look inside his home. At 5:00 a.m. cops showed-up and asked me about (him).”

Sources tell reporter Justin Joseph someone made either a call or a text from the person of interest’s phone threatening violence if James Egan Holmes was not released from jail. That call prompted police to issue an alert to find and detain him. Source

If you have any information, please contact the Aurora Police Department. A theatergoer said yesterday that he was sure someone opened the door for James Holmes as the credit started rolling early Friday morning.
