Colorado suspect’s apartment was rigged to kill

As police dismantle explosives, victims named — one of them just 6

AURORA, Colo. — Federal and local authorities began disarming the booby-trapped apartment of a man arrested in the deadly mass shooting at a movie theater, neutralizing many of the sophisticated explosive devices on Saturday while trying to preserve evidence that might offer insight into the rampage.

Sergeant Cassidee Carlson of the Aurora Police Department said bomb specialists had eliminated the major threats in the apartment, making it safe to enter. But “there still remains all kinds of hazards inside the apartment,” she said. “We will remain here for hours to collect evidence and mitigate those hazards.”
