What did the University of Colorado know, when? Aurora shooting suspect James Holmes told a classmate, four months before the attack, that he wanted to kill people, say prosecutors in new court filing. Prosecutors are trying to get access to university records.
Members of a University of Colorado threat assessment team reportedly were told about James Holmes, the Colorado shooting suspect, just before he quit school, raising questions about the team's obligations.
