SAN DIEGO - A San Diego pastor remembers the Colorado shooting suspect as a shy boy who was driven to succeed in school.
Jerald Borgie of Penasquitos Lutheran Church said Sunday that he never saw James Holmes, now 24, mingle with others his age at the church.
Borgie says that if he and Holmes had conversations, it was the pastor who initiated them.
He says Holmes took pride in his academic ability but didn't brag about it.
Borgie says the Holmes family has belonged to his church for about 10 years but he last spoke to James Holmes about six years ago.
Inside the church Sunday, signs read "Prayers for those affected by the Colorado tragedy" and "Prayers for the Holmes family." Dozens of churchgoers wrote messages of support for the family.
