The man was identified by police as James Holmes, 24 years old, who has no previous record (only a traffic ticket).

How it happened The man opened fire and slowly made his way up the stairs shooting people at random in the state's worst mass shooting since Columbine. One of the women who escaped the shooting said Holmes pointed a gun at her face but then shot people seated behind her.
Twenty-five-year-old Jennifer Seeger, of Aurora, says she was in the second row, about four feet from the gunman. She says she 'was just a deer in headlights' and ducked to the ground.
