AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- Bomb experts hope to soon enter the booby trapped apartment of the suspect in Friday's mass shooting at a suburban Denver movie theater.
Aurora police say the first goal is to make the area safe by removing the trip wire, which may include a controlled detonation that causes a loud boom and possibly a fire.
Authorities will alert people before that happens.
Then they plan to remove items from the apartment that could explode, including about 30 shells that will be placed in sand trucks and taken to a disposal site.
Police say they don't have a timeframe because they want to be careful and not rush.
