We just got our first look at suspected Colorado shooter James Holmes.
His court appearance wrapped up a short time ago, perhaps with a few more questions than answers.
Rene Marsh has a recap.
--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS --
JAMES HOLMES SAT SILENTLY, STILL SPORTING HIS DYED RED HAIR, WITH A PUBLIC DEFENDER BY HIS SIDE.
HOLMES BARELY RAISED HIS EYES AND LOOKED ALMOST SLEEPY DURING HIS FIRST COURT APPEARANCE MONDAY.
HE'S SUSPECTED OF KILLING 12 PEOPLE AND INJURING DOZENS MORE EARLY FRIDAY MORNING WHEN HE ALLEGEDLY OPENED FIRE AT A PACKED SHOWING OF "THE DARK KNIGHT RISES".
INVESTIGATORS SAY HIS APARTMENT WAS BOOBY TRAPPED, DESIGNED TO KILL ANYONE WHO WALKED THROUGH THE DOOR.
WE WON'T KNOW THE FULL EXTENT OF THE CHARGES THE 24-YEAR OLD WILL FACE UNTIL NEXT MONDAY.
FOR THE TIME BEING, HE'S BEING HELD WITHOUT BAIL.
MANY OF THE VICTIMS OF FRIDAY'S SHOOTING JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT COULD PROVOKE SUCH A HORRIFIC CRIME.
"Just to go in there and shoot up people you've never met. you've never even known, just doesn't seem logical."
AT AN EMOTIONAL VIGIL SUNDAY EVENING IN AURORA, COLORADO, THE COMMUNITY CAME TOGETHER TO GRIEVE.
PRESIDENT OBAMA VISITED WITH VICTIMS AND FAMILIES OFFERING CONDOLENCES ON BEHALF OF THE ENTIRE COUNTRY.
It was an opportunity for families to describe how wonderful their brother or their son or daughter was and the lives that they had touched and the dreams that they held for the future.
THIS IS EXPECTED TO BE AN EMOTIONAL WEEK IN AURORA AS FAMILIES PREPARE TO BURY LOVED ONES.
LATER THIS AFTERNOON, WE'RE EXPECTING TO HEAR FROM HOLMES' FAMILY IN SAN DIEGO.
THEY HAVE NOT SPOKEN PUBLICLY SINCE FRIDAY'S SHOOTING.
REPORTING IN CENTENNIAL, COLORADO I'M RENE MARSH.
