Video: FBI search Colo. gunman's booby-trapped apartment
Pictures from inside the apartment are fairly disturbing and the devices look to be sophisticated
By PoliceOne Staff
A camera on a 12-foot pole recorded footage inside the apartment which revealed explosive devices were inside, according to reports. Investigators have described a sophisticated booby-trap with trip wires connecting incendiary and chemical devices.
Five surrounding buildings were evacuated as a precaution.
Twelve people died and at least 50 were injured when a former medical student in a gas mask barged into the crowded theater, hurled a gas canister and then opened fire.
When the smoke began to spread, some moviegoers thought it was a stunt that was part of the "The Dark Knight Rises," one of the most highly anticipated films of the summer. They saw a silhouette of a person in the haze near the screen, first pointing a gun at the crowd and then shooting.
