Huh he was in the same bio-medical program and fled his apartment before the attack. Well I can see where that would raise a red flag or two. But really, does whoever this is think a threatening phone call is gonna get that guy out of jail? I thought bio-med types were smart.

This might be serious. Are any news agencies reporting this, or is it just this blog?

Local station FOX31 reports:

Sources tell Justin Joseph someone made either a call or a text from the person of interest's phone threatening violence if James Egan Holmes was not released from jail. That call prompted police to issue an alert to find and detain him.-blurb on huffington post

Right, it seems like an important story. Are there any actual news sites reporting on it or just blogs?

It's a local Fox affiliate desperately trying to scare the shiat out of an already terrified population.

it's popping up on some news sites slowly, and it's gaining traction on twitter, let's just hope there's nothing to it.

Initial reports (I heard) said there were two people but I thought the police pooh-poohed that.

"Person of interest": The shooter's buddy or roommate who has been scoffing at Holmes' promises to "make the premiere something they'll really remember!!" for the last three months, realized fifteen minutes too late this freak was for-real, and is now hiding under his old bed at his mom's house and trying to create some rational explanation for why he thought Holmes was "just kidding" that won't get him tossed in a cell right next to "Batman" Holmes.

Betcha.

Wait is he an assassin? Why do we have a middle name, James Egan Holmes? Lone gunmen don't get middle names

The whole shooter-with-a-middle-name thingy is probably--and it's just a guess on my part--a big CYA on the part of the media, who absolutely don't need the 1500 other "James Holmes"es out in the world don't sue them for defamation, slander, invasion of privacy, etc. Calling him James EGAN Holmes gives them (and all the other nutjobs out there, probably) a way to ensure some poor "James Paul Holmes" isn't constantly being hounded by media and other freaks about whether he's the shooter or not.

Just a guess.

I report for the people. I was watching 9News' live webcast and they interviewed a couple of young men who reported tear gas canisters being thrown from the front and the back of the theater. And like I said then, these two young men are the kind of witnesses that defense attorneys lose sleep over.

ABC & NBC both showed facebook/Tea party pages of every James, Jimmy, Jim Holmes they could find until they were given a middle name. Other may have done it but I don't have cable.

Oh.. I thought you were actually a local reporter (L/A Local/Affiliate). I'm doing some design work for an STL station and I know they're desperate/very monetarily appreciative for any reputable bonus little leads in this. Carry on sir......

If you're in a crowd of people and someone throws a smoke bomb/tear gas towards you a natural reaction is to throw it back. Happens all the time and is the likely explanation.

Actually, I don't know about that. Most people have never actually encountered a grenade or gas canister in person. I remember last July when I was bartending, someone lit off and threw 4 and of those smoke bombs you can buy in any gas station around that season inside. Everyone in the bar basically looked, froze for a second, resumed business as usual and complained. I had to actually start telling people to throw them back outside.
That's drunk people, so I can factor that in, but with a movie audience, that especially thought it was part of the show at first, I'm not sure anyone would be quick to pick it up and lob it back. Especially if it was tear gas. The people closest to the canister would have been blinded and choking. Hard to find the source in a dark theater under the debilitating effects of teargas.

And they're all sitting down and they're crowded together and the tear gas canister has probably rolled underneath a seat.

That would definitely not be my natural reaction. My natural reaction would be to get as far out of the way of whatever it was as soon as possible. What sort of person naturally lobs hand grenades back at the enemy?

Not to troll but:
The reason many suggest as to why potentially CCW carrying moviegoers didn't return fire was because the scene was dark and chaotic.
In this same setting, how do you find a grenade on the ground and how do you see where to throw it?
