Holmes posted a picture of himself on his MySpace page (above). Holmes had no friends besides the MySpace founder Tom, who was automatically added as a friend to anyone who signed up for an account.
Here is the first photo of “Dark Knight” theater shooter James Holmes … released by the University of Colorado, where he attended the School of Medicine.
SanDiego6.com also obtained a photo of Holmes, which appears to have been taken several years ago.
Holmes grew up in San Diego.
James Holmes used 3 different kinds of guns during his assault on a Colorado movie theater … including a high power assault rifle.
The Aurora PD says Holmes was in possession of an AR-15, a Remington 870 shotgun and a 40 caliber glock handgun when he was arrested this morning.
Cops say they found another 40 caliber glock in the shooter’s car, located right outside the movie theater.
An AR-15 is a semi-automatic weapon … capable of firing off hundreds of rounds per minute.
Below is a video of someone demonstrating the firing power of the AR-15 — a civilian version of the M-16 assault rifle.
During a news conference this afternoon, Kelly said, “We have some information, most of it is public. It clearly looks like a deranged individual. He had his hair painted red, he said he was ‘The Joker,’ obviously the enemy of Batman.”
ABC News is reporting Holmes made the Joker remark to police, not during the shooting.
It’s likely Kelly obtained the information from Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates — according to reports, the two are good friends. In fact, Oates was a member of the NYPD for 21 years.
Holmes may have been trying to recreate a scene from the 2008 movie, “The Dark Knight” … which features a scene where The Joker, played by Heath Ledger, wears a red wig while destroying a hospital.
