Source: Colo. Shooting Suspect Not Cooperating

The suspect in a shooting that killed or wounded 71 people early Friday in a movie theater is not talking to investigators, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press.


Holmes graduated from University of California, Riverside, in the spring of 2010 with a bachelor of science degree in neuroscience, said university spokesman Sean Nealon. No other details were immediately available about his life on campus, Nealon said.

In 2011, Holmes enrolled in the Ph.D. neuroscience program at the University of Colorado-Denver but was in the process of withdrawing, said spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery. University officials earlier said he was a student at the university's medical school.
