More Warning Signs About Colorado Shooting Suspect

A Denver television station is reporting that a psychiatrist who was treating the suspected Colorado movie theater gunman asked University of Colorado police for a background check on the man six weeks before the July 20 shootings.

KMGH-TV reported Monday that Dr. Lynne Fenton called university police about a background check on James Eagan Holmes in early June. It cited unidentified sources it said were familiar with the investigation into the shootings. The station reports that Fenton didn’t ask that Holmes be taken to a hospital for evaluation and observation.

Separately, ABC News reports that Fenton told a campus police officer in early June that she had concerns about Holmes.

Fenton’s attorneys didn’t immediately comment on the reports. University police and a university spokeswoman say they can’t comment, citing a judge’s gag order.

Holmes was a graduate student at the university. He is charged with killing 12 people and injuring 58 at an Aurora theater.
