Photo of Colorado mass shooting suspect released


AURORA, Colo. (WKOW) -- The university where the Aurora shooting suspect went to school most recently releases his photo.

James Holmes, 24, withdrew from classes at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver this past spring. Holmes is accused of killing a dozen people when he fired into a crowded movie theater in the Denver suburbs.

Holmes was living in the Denver area while he went to school, but his parents live in the San Diego area. A California woman who identified herself as Holmes' mother, told ABC News her son was likely the alleged culprit, saying, "You have the right person."

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."
