Colo. suspect in doctoral program, not med school
University of Colo.: Shooting suspect was withdrawing from doctoral program, not med school
By The Associated Press

AURORA, Colo. (AP) ¯¯¯ The suspect in a mass shooting at a Colorado movie theater was in a doctoral program but was not in medical school.

Spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery says 24-year-old James Holmes was studying neuroscience in a Ph.D. program at the University of Colorado-Denver graduate school. University officials earlier said he was a student at the university's medical school.

Montgomery says Holmes enrolled in the program in June 2011 and was in the process of withdrawing.



Authorities say Holmes fired into a crowded movie theater in the Denver suburb of Aurora while wearing a gas mask.

Holmes graduated from high school in the San Diego area. He's in police custody, and the FBI says there is no indication the attack is tied to any terrorist groups.
