FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson reports on how events unfolded at the movie theater:
It was just about 10 minutes into the movie when the gunman kicked in an exit door near the screen, tossed a tear gas canister and started shooting.
Jennifer Seeger was in row two and saw the gunman way too closely.
(Seeger) “He had it to my face. He had the gun in my face. I was freaked out for like five seconds. And I just dove into the aisle and I was like I don’t know what to do, I’m just gonna curl in a ball.”
Police found the suspect, identified at 24-year-old James Holmes, outside the building.
They’ve searched his car and apartment for explosives.

Editor’s Note: Police are also dealing with a situation at suspect’s apartment. Authorities say it’s booby trapped.
