Also, ABC News reports that a woman identifying herself as Holmes’ mother.  The San Diego woman seems to have no question in her mind that her son is the shooter.

The woman, contacted at her home in San Diego, spoke briefly with ABC News and immediately expressed concern her son may be involved in the shooting death of at least 12 people overnight.

“You have the right person,” she said, apparently speaking on gut instinct. “I need to call the police… I need to fly out to Colorado.”

USA Today quoted an Associated Press report that Holmes dropped out of the University of Colorado last month. He was studying neurosciences.

…The suspect lives at an apartment about four miles from the theater where the shootings took place and in view of Children’s Hospital, where some victims were taken.

The suspect told authorities there were explosives at his apartment, which was quickly surrounded by police, The Denver Post reports.
