“Dark Knight” Shooter James Holmes Attempts Suicide

Back in July, James Holmes entered a movie theater playing a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” with weapons, body armor, and a gas mask.  He killed 12 people and wounded 59 others.  He is now in prison and the latest we have heard is that he attempted to commit suicide. James Holmes was hospitalized after he tried to harm himself when running into a jail cell wall.  This past Tuesday, James Holmes was taken to a hospital and he was unable to attend a court hearing set for two days according to NBC News.  James Holmes’ lawyers met on Wednesday and said that he had a sudden development of a medical condition, requesting a delay in the routine hearing that was supposed to take place yesterday.

“What occurred was mid-day yesterday. We were informed of a situation that involved a trip to a hospital,” stated attorney Tamara Brady in court. “It’s not as simple as a migraine.”

The prosecutors said that the hearing should not be delayed unless there was more information about Holmes’ condition. James Holmes reportedly ran headfirst into a jail cell wall.  He first stood on his bed and fell backward into a wall.  Then he ran into the wall and tried to bash his head into the wall again.
