James Holmes, Aurora, Colorado 'Dark Knight Rises' shooting suspect's apartment being searched

AURORA, Colo. -- Multiple police agencies, including a swat team and bomb squad, are outside the apartment complex of a man who killed 12 people and injured over 30 others at an Aurora movie Theater.
 
Video from the Scripps Denver affiliate at 6:20 a.m. showed a FBI agent removing the glass from the window. In the last hour, video showed very small cameras being used to look inside a broken window, past the mini blinds.
 
The apartment is believed to be the home of 24-year-old James Holmes. ABC News said Holmes was arrested after the deadly shooting at a theater in Aurora.
 
Twelve people died after a gunman opened fire in a theater showing "The Dark Knight Rises" at 12:05 a.m. on Friday.
