FILE – In this April 27, 2015 file photo taken from video, Colorado movie theater massacre defendant James Holmes, far left, sits at the defense table at the opening of his trial in Centennial, Colo.CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4) – All the first responders to the Aurora theater shooting scene had been under a gag order from the court since that deadly night. — A police officer testified in the Colorado theater shooting trial that he was in a parking lot just 20 feet from James Holmes when he realized Holmes was involved in the attack. Oviatt says he first thought Holmes was another officer because he wore a gas mask and helmet, and police had been warned to wear masks because of gas inside.

The officers testified Thursday that Holmes first wore a vacant expression but later looked intently out the window of a squad car where they placed him. It was learned that when police arrived, they found the shooter, James Holmes, almost immediately — because it was too early for a SWAT officer to be on the scene. She loaded her into a car and raced Moser to a hospital. “By the time we pulled into the hospital she stopped talking, she lost consciousness (sobbing) … and I really thought she’d just die there in front of me,” Cabouet said.
