According to court documents released Friday, prosecutors in the case against James Holmes, who is suspected of killing 12 people at a July screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colo., say Holmes threatened a professor at the University of Colorado before the shootings — allegedly forcing officials to ban him from campus. The statement conflicts with the university's claim that Holmes was denied access to the school because he had withdrawn from his PhD program. The name of the professor who was threatened was blacked out in the documents. Holmes faces 152 charges for the shooting, which also left 58 injured.
