Parents of alleged Colorado shooter: 'Hearts go out' to victims
The parents of suspected Colorado shooter James Holmes remained in their San Diego home Friday but said their "hearts go out" to the shooting victims, a police spokeswoman told reporters.
San Diego police will remain in the Rancho Peñasquitos neighborhood to preserve order, said Lt. Andra Brown.
"We're only here to preserve peace, not to conduct an investigation," Brown said. "Other agencies are here to investigate."
Arlene Holmes has identified herself to reporters as the mother of the suspected shooter. Her son went to high school in San Diego and then attended college in Colorado, Brown said.
Arlene Holmes called police shortly after 6 a.m. when reporters began arriving outside the family home.
The family "asks for your patience and respect at this time," Brown said.
