On Monday, shooting suspect James Holmes goes on trial for 165 counts, including murder and attempted murder charges. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
At least 12 people were killed and 70 others were injured in a shooting during an early morning screening of the new Batman movie at a Colorado theater.
Police arrested a man believed to be the shooter in a rear parking lot of the theater in Aurora, a suburb of Denver.
Two federal officials confirmed the suspect as Colorado resident James Holmes, 24.
Chaos broke out during the showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" at the Century Aurora 16 theater when the shooting began.
Police said the gunman "appeared" in the front of the theater and threw a smoke bomb before opening fire. Sources say the smoke bomb was tear gas.
Cell phone video taken by someone at the theater showed scores of people screaming and fleeing the building. Some had blood on their clothes.
One police officer carried a girl believed to be about 9 with gunshot wounds to her back out of the theater, a witness said. "She wasn't moving."
