If anyone had opened the door to James Holmes’ booby-trapped apartment, they would have suffered serious injuries and likely lost their life.
Jim Yacone, FBI special agent in charge for Denver, said at a Saturday afternoon news conference that the explosives and IEDs in the apartment were as dangerous as feared. The threat is not over, he said, but is greatly reduced.
Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said that residents of the surrounding buildings near Holmes’ apartment near 16th Avenue and Paris Street may be allowed home late Saturday.
Oates said that the booby-traps at the apartment were designed to kill whoever entered it and probably targeted law enforcement officers.
“If you think we are angry,” he said. “We are sure as hell angry.”
