Alleged Batman killer banned

PROSECUTORS believe the man accused of a mass shooting at a Batman film premiere was banned from a university campus after making threats just weeks before the massacre.

According to CNN, shooting suspect James Holmes reportedly threatened a professor at the University of Colorado where Mr Holmes took graduate classes.

He was barred from the university before the July 20 shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in which 12 were killed and 58 injured.

Holmes is facing 152 charges, including murder and attempted murder.
