AURORA, CO — New court documents released Friday in the Colorado movie theater shooting reveal that suspect James Holmes "had conversations with a classmate about wanting to kill people" months before the July 20 massacre.
The new details about evidence gathered in the case against Holmes were made public in a court document filed by prosecutors over a defense move to keep the suspect's educational records from the University of Colorado under seal.
Holmes, 24, is accused of opening fire last month during a midnight premiere of the latest Batman movie, leaving 12 dead and injuring 58 others.
He has been charged with murder and attempted murder, and faces two weapons charges.
