Theater shooter warned classmate to avoid him

(AP) – James Holmes warned a former fellow graduate student to stay away from him just over a week before he carried out a deadly attack at a Colorado movie theater.

Hillary Allen says she texted Holmes to check on him July 8, 2012, about a month after he said he was dropping out of school. He told her he had a form of mania and that she should avoid him, saying he was “bad news bears.”

During their text exchange, Allen asked Holmes if his condition was manageable. He responded: “It was. Floodgates open now.”

Allen testified she told Holmes she struggled with her own issues, and asked if he was OK. Holmes responded simply “yep.” It was the last time she heard from them.

Holmes’ lawyer later noted it was unclear which part of Allen’s text Holmes was responding to.
