James Holmes, the 24-year-old accused of killing 12 people and injuring dozens more at an early showing of the 'Dark Knight Rises' in Aurora, Colorado, told police "I am the Joker," ABC News' reports.
AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- Police in Colorado say they will start meeting with the families of shooting victims to tell them the fate of their loved ones.
Aurora Police Chief Dan Coates says the last of the 10 deceased victims from the midnight showing of a Batman movie was removed from the theater Friday afternoon.
Coates says officers expect to get a confirmed list of the deceased and meet with their families Friday night.
In addition to the 10 people who died at the theater, two others later died from their injuries.
Coates says there are 70 victims but not all were shot. Eleven are in critical condition.
The chief says suspect John Holmes purchased four guns at local gun shops and 6,000 rounds of ammunition through the Internet.
Holmes was in custody Friday.
