University of Colorado Statement on July 20 Shooting

Extending deepest condolences to victims, family and friends

7/20/2012
Anschutz Medical Campus

AURORA, Colo. - The University of Colorado community, particularly the CU Anschutz Medical Campus community, extends its deepest condolences to the victims, family and friends affected by today’s tragic shooting. The expertise and professionalism in the response of the doctors, nurses, other health care professionals and counseling professionals at the University of Colorado Hospital has been exceptional. We also appreciate the work of all those throughout the campus who responded to the tragedy.

The university is cooperating fully with law enforcement as they continue their investigation. The alleged gunman, James Holmes, was a graduate student studying neurosciences on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus.  He was admitted in June 2011, but left the program in June 2012. The university has taken appropriate security measures to address the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, patients and visitors.
