(Denver Post) Soon after a gunman killed 12 people and wounded at least 58 others in a darkened movie theater, University of Colorado Denver police officer Lynn Whitten told an Aurora investigator that the suspect’s psychiatrist had warned her of his danger to the public, according to a search warrant unsealed Thursday.

Whitten, told Aurora investigator Will Hinton that she had been advised by Dr. Lynne Fenton that “through her contact with James Holmes, she was reporting, per her requirement, his danger to the public due to homicidal statements he had made,” the warrant says.

Whitten said Fenton had reported that “she had been treating Holmes and that Holmes had stopped seeing her and had begun threatening her via text message,” the affidavit says.
