Aurora, Colorado Alleged Gunman James Holmes Court Appearance for 'Dark Knight Rises' Shootings

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (Mon, Jul 23) – James Holmes, the suspected gunman of worst mass-shooting in US history, makes his first court appearance in Colorado.

The 24-year-old Holmes looked dazed in court today, the first time he has been seen in public since he allegedly killed 12 people and wounded another 58 in a wild shootout during a showing of the new Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises."

James Holmes shuffled into court in a maroon jailhouse jumpsuit with his hands cuffed, sat virtually motionless during the hearing, his eyes drooping as the judge advised him of the severity of the case. At one point, Holmes simply closed his eyes.

Holmes' appearance raised questions among some observers about his mental competency.

The court appearance came in what is technically known as an advisement, a first appearance designed to tell a defendant of his or her rights in the case. Holmes was told he is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Formal charges are to be presented next Monday.

Unfortunately, I can’t share the full coverage video here due to technical problem; but you can watch it here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITU1jXmLErE)
