Report: Psychiatrist Contacted Police About Suspected Theater Shooter
DENVER (AP) -- A Denver television station is reporting that a psychiatrist who was treating the suspected Colorado movie theater gunman asked University of Colorado police for a background check on the man six weeks before the July 20 shootings.
KMGH-TV reported Monday (http://bit.ly/QGc8nZ) that Dr. Lynne Fenton called university police about a background check on James Eagan Holmes in early June. It cited unidentified sources it said were familiar with the investigation into the shootings. The station reports that Fenton didn't ask that Holmes be taken to a hospital for evaluation and observation.
Separately, ABC News reports that Fenton told a campus police officer in early June that she had concerns about Holmes.
Fenton's attorneys didn't immediately comment on the reports. University police and a university spokeswoman say they can't comment, citing a judge's gag order.
Holmes was a graduate student at the university. He is charged with killing 12 people and injuring 58 at an Aurora theater.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A preliminary hearing is scheduled to get underway for a pair of brothers accused in the January shooting deaths of four women at a crime-plagued Tulsa apartment complex.
The hearing for James and Cedric Poore is set to begin Thursday morning in Tulsa district court. It could last two days, according to court records.
The brothers are charged in the killings of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson. The four were found tied up and shot in the head.
The Poores have pleaded not guilty.
Authorities believe the brothers robbed the women, then killed them because they feared they would be identified.
