James Holmes Bought 6,000 Rounds Of Ammo, Big Assault Rifle Magazine, From Internet

Batman massacre suspect James Holmes bought 6,000 rounds of ammunition and a 100-round magazine for an assault rifle used in the shooting on the Internet in recent weeks, the Aurora police chief said Friday night.

A drum-style magazine for an AR-15 assault rifle was recovered at the movie theater, said police Chief Dan Oates at a news conference.

Holmes bought four guns recently from area retailers and 6,000 rounds of ammunition and several magazines that fit the assault rifle on the Internet, Oates said. He said 3,000 rounds were .223-caliber bullets for the AR-15. The chief said he didn't know where Holmes obtained the full suit of body armor and gas mask he was wearing when arrested.

With the 100-round magazine, "he could have gotten off 50 to 60 rounds -- even if it was a semi-automatic -- within one minute," Oates said.

"All the weapons he possessed, he possessed legally," the chief said. All the ammunition and the clips were legal as well, he said.

Oates said a revised count of victims show 70 injured and 12 dead. A few of those injured were hurt from trauma that didn't involve gunshots, he said.

James Holmes To Appear In Court Monday

Accused Batman shooter James Eagan Holmes will appear in Arapahoe County court Monday morning for what Colorado calls an initial advisement, the Denver Post reported.

A judge will advise Holmes of his rights and a prosecutor may file formal charges. After that, it may be months until he is tried in the shooting of 71 people, killing 12.
