Gunman Says He Tried Calling Crisis Line Before Shootings

James Holmes lingered outside a suburban Denver movie theater for a moment or two. He was thinking someone at a mental health hotline might talk him out of killing people he didn't know, or that the FBI might swoop in and stop him. That's what he told a psychiatrist last year. But his phone call to the crisis line was disconnected after 9 seconds, before anyone answered. Jurors in his murder trial saw the videotaped conversation between Holmes and the psychiatrist in court on Tuesday.
