Colorado shooting: A Times/Google+ Hangout

The Times is hosting a live Google + Hangout concerning the "Dark Knight" theater shooting in Colorado with Times reporters Rebecca Keegan and Matt Stevens as well as National Editor Roger Smith.

People who knew the suspect described him Friday as an intelligent student who showed no signs of violence.

James Holmes, 24, who graduated from Westview High School in San Diego in 2006, was arrested after the shooting early Friday in suburban Denver and was described by law enforcement sources as a loner.

Holmes was a student at the University of Colorado Denver/Anschutz Medical Campus, but the school said he was in the process of withdrawing from the graduate program in neuroscience.
