Dark Knight Gunman James Holmes’ Classmate Yeom Pyo Lee Questioned by Police After ‘Threatening Violence’ (Facebook)

Yeom Pyo Lee, an acquaintance of Aurora theater gunman James Holmes, has been questioned by police after allegedly phoning in a threat in an attempt to have him released from jail. Lee was sought by law enforcement after police received a message from his telephone threatening violence if he wasn’t released from police custody.

Yeom Pyo Lee, thought to be a student in the same PhD program at the University of Colorado-Denver James Holmes dropped, was released by police without being charged after questioning.

Yeom Pyo Lee, who is originally from South Korea, earned a master’s degree in biomedical science from Hallym University before moving to Colorado to study for his doctorate, KDVR reports.
