James Holmes, the man who shot and killed 12 people in an Aurora movie theater last month, had apparently planned his mass murder four months before it was carried out.
According to court documents by the prosecutors, he once told a classmate in March about “wanting to kill people… and that he would do so when his life was over.”
Two months after that as the semester drew to a close, James failed his final exam and his professors tried to keep him out of their labs.
According to Huffington Post:
That alleged conversation would have occurred at roughly the same time that police have said Holmes began receiving "a high volume of deliveries" at his home and at the university. Police haven't said what those packages contained, but they said he ordered thousands of rounds of ammunition on the Internet.
This is supposedly the earliest threat reported from Holmes that led to his shooting a theater of 70 people.
Police say they also caught on to James’ behavior when he made threats to a professor 6 weeks before the shootings when he failed his final exam.
We hope that justice can be served and we continue to pray for the victims’ families.
