Psychiatrist Says Colorado Shooter Never Revealed Murderous Plan

The psychiatrist who treated James Holmes before he attacked a Colorado movie theater testified in his murder trial Tuesday. Dr. Lynne Fenton said she would have called police and had him detained if she had known his plans. She testified that Holmes acknowledged he was having homicidal thoughts as often as three or four times a day. However, he never let on that he was assembling an arsenal and planning a mass killing. Had she known that Holmes "had some sort of plan and some intent to carry out those thoughts," she said, "I likely would have put him on a mental health hold and contacted the police."
