Fox Affiliate Attempts To Interview Father Of Theater Shooter James Holmes En Route To Colorado

Even though details about the 24-year-old alleged Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes begin to emerge, much still remains a mystery. Many news outlets have sought Holmes’ parents for any sort of insight into the murderous rampage. Fox News’ San Diego affiliate managed to catch up with Holmes’ father in a San Diego airport en route to Colorado to cooperate with the police investigation.

As the off-camera reporter asked the elder Holmes some questions, it was clear he was not interested in answering them. Understandably so.

“He’s just a young man, he’s still in his 20s,” the reporter said to the father, “Do you have any reason to believe — any knowledge why he would do this?” The father Holmes (whose first name has yet to be revealed) remained silent.

“Is there anything you can tell us about him?” she continued to ask. With a clearly upset face, he nodded his head to indicate “No.”

“Was he here recently? Was everything okay?” she asked, but to no answer.

Throughout the video, the distraught emotions are clearly visible on Mr. Holmes’ face. Indeed, as Smith notes, “there are a lot of victims today,” including the family of the alleged shooter.
