In the continuing saga of knowing arm crazy people so they can murder your friends and famioly, the man accused of opening fire on an Aurora movie theater told a classmate he wanted to kill people four months before the shooting, newly released court records allege.
Prosecutors made the allegation in a motion released Friday seeking access to James Holmes' records from the University of Colorado Denver's neuroscience graduate program.
Holmes "had conversations with a classmate about wanting to kill people in March 2012, and that he would do so when his life was over," attorneys for the state wrote. The student wasn't identified.
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.
The prosecution's allegation is the earliest report of a possible threat from Holmes, who was an enigma to many before authorities said he opened fire on a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" on July 20. Twelve people were killed and 58 were wounded.
