James Holmes, the suspect in the movie theater shooting that happened earlier this year in Colorado has been taken to a hospital after multiple suicide attempts, according to his lawyer.
In addition, his next hearing has also been postponed by the judge overseeing the trial.
“The court date has been postponed until December 10, after Holmes’s lawyers requested an emergency court session following Tuesday’s incident, said Colorado state courts spokesman Robert McCallum.
The defense lawyer told the judge that there was an “incident that required Mr Holmes to go to the hospital yesterday, and it would not be something that would resolve itself by tomorrow”
“In the first incident, Holmes is said to have stood on his bed, then fallen backwards in an apparent attempt to bang his head.
The second time around, he reportedly ran from one side of his cell to the other in order to thump his head against a wall. And sources tell the station he simply hit his head against the wall on attempt number three.
These assorted efforts didn’t result in wounds that would have been visible to those attending this morning’s hearing had it been held as scheduled, 9News maintains. But while sources cited by the outlet describe Holmes’s actions as “not aggressive,” that description is certainly up for debate.
Expect the staff at the Arapahoe County jail where he’s being held to keep an even closer eye on Holmes than they do already do — especially as the newly scheduled December 10 make-up hearing nears.”
Since the shooting there has been a wide range of evidence surfacing that directly contradict the official version of events, leading many to believe that this attack was staged.
It is very common for these types of controversial murder cases to end with the death of the suspect before the trial is even over, and it is always possible that this case will turn out the same way.
Many of those cases are probobly legitimate suicides, because murderers don’t have a whole lot to live for once they get caught, but some of these high profile cases are highly suspicious, like the death of Lee Harvey Oswald, for example.
This trial with James Holmes will be important to keep an eye on as the court hearings progress.
It is likely that many details about the shooting will remain unknown, but it is still possible that more could be revealed throughout the trial.
The following is a 9News report on these recent events:
6:55PM EST November 16. 2012 – A 20-year-old Missouri man was charged Friday with planning a mass shooting this weekend at either a screening of the latest Twilight movie or a local Walmart.
Blaec Lammers, of Bolivar, is accused of buying assault rifles and more than 400 rounds of ammunition in a plot mimicking the July mass shooting that killed 12 and wounded 57 at an Aurora, Colo., theater showing the premiere of the latest Batman movie, the Springfield News-Leader reports.
Lammers was charged with first-degree assault, making a terroristic threat and armed criminal action. He is being held on $500,000 bail.
His mother contacted police Thursday, saying Lammers had bought assault weapons and ammunition, and was concerned he “may have intentions of shooting people at the movie,” The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, according to court documents. He told police he had bought a ticket for a Sunday show.
He then stated he might instead target the Walmart Supercenter in Bolivar “because if he ran out of ammunition he would be able to break the glass where the ammunition is stored and get more, writes the News-Leader, published by Gannett, USA TODAY’s parent.
Daniel VanOrden, Circuit General Manager for B&B Theatres of Fulton, Mo., said in an e-mail to USA TODAY, “We appreciate the Bolivar Police Department for acting swiftly to avert any threat to the multiple potential targets, thus making this a non-incident.” He did say whether any, or additional, security was planned for Twilight screenings.
Walmart has not released a statement.
According to the police affidavit, signed by Ross, Lammers said he had bought two assault rifles for hunting. When asked about “recent shootings in the news,” he “stated that he had a lot in common with the people. .. [He] stated he was quiet, kind of a loner, had recently purchased firearms and didn’t tell anybody about it, and had homicidal thoughts,” according to a probable-cause statement.
Lammers said he bought the guns Monday and Tuesday — police did not say where — and went to nearby Aldrich on Tuesday to practice shooting. According to the police affidavit, he said he had never fired a gun before and “wanted to make sure he knew how they functioned.” He also said he was currently not taking his medication, which was not specified.

LITTLETON, Colo. — In a new book about atypical children, the parents of Dylan Klebold spoke at length for the first time about the day her son and Eric Harris opened fire on students and teachers at Columbine High School.
When she heard about the shooting on the morning of April 20, 1999, Sue Klebold said she “had a sudden vision of what Dylan might be doing.” That’s when she began to hope that her son would take his own life instead of trying to make it out alive.
“While every other mother in Littleton was praying that her child was safe, I had to pray that mine would die before he hurt anyone else,” Klebold said said.
The thought-provoking confession comes from the book “Far From the Tree,” which was released by Andrew Solomon this week after he spent 11 years studying children with potentially-isolating characteristics.
Solomon studied families coping with deafness, dwarfism, Down syndrome, autism, schizophrenia, multiple severe disabilities. He also studied with children who were prodigies, who were conceived in rape and who became criminals.
Klebold’s comments were pulled from the chapter on children who become criminals, something Colorado has gotten all-too-familiar with in the wake of Columbine, especially in the past year.
James Holmes, 24, was arrested for the Aurora theater tragedy in July and 17-year-old Austin Sigg was arrested for the brutal murder of Jessica Ridgeway in October.
In researching Klebold’s parents, Solomon journeyed to Colorado and stayed at the home the family has lived in since that fateful day in 1999. He even slept in Dylan’s old bedroom.
Solomon asked Sue to elaborate about the wish that her son would end his own life on April 20.
“I gave the hardest prayer I ever made, that he would kill himself,” she said. “Because then at least I would know he wanted to die and wouldn’t be left with all the questions I’d have if he got caught by a police bullet. Maybe I was right, but I’ve spent so many hours regretting that prayer: I wished for my son to kill himself and he did.”
