Obama: ‘There will be other days for politics’


In light of the tragic violence in Aurora, President Obama scrapped his campaign schedule in Florida today, but delivered remarks this morning on the incident from Ft. Myers.

Meanwhile, additional information continues to be released. We recently learned, for example, that the apartment belonging to the suspected shooter, 24-year-old James Holmes, had been booby-trapped. The building and immediate area have been evacuated.

Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates told reporters, “What we have is a bunch of bomb techs from a bunch of different agencies,” Oates said. “We could be here for hours. We could be here for days… The pictures are pretty disturbing. It looks pretty sophisticated in terms of how it’s been booby trapped.”

The University of Colorado medical school also confirmed this morning that Holmes was a student there, but he withdrew last month.
