Transcript for Aurora, Colo., Shooting: Did University Know About James Holmes' Condition?
NOW, TO AN ABC NEWS EXCLUSIVE ABOUT JAMES HOLMES, THE SHOOTER AT A COLORADO THEATER LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AGO. NEWS FROM KMGH IN DENVER, RAISING QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT HIS UNIVERSITY MAY HAVE KNOWN BEFORE THE SHOOTINGS. ABC'S MARK GREENBLATT JOINS US WITH THE VERY LATEST. MARK? Reporter: GOOD MORNING, AMY. ONE VICTIM REMAINS IN CRITICAL CONDITION HERE AT UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL BEHIND ME. BUT THE ATTENTION HAS NOW TURNED TO THE PSYCHIATRIST WHO TREATED JAMES HOLMES, AS WE'VE JUST LEARNED THAT SHE'S HIRED TWO NEW CIVIL ATTORNEYS. THIS, AS WE ALSO LEARNED THAT SHE MAY HAVE REACHED OUT AND EXPRESSED CONCERNS ABOUT HOLMES' BEHAVIOR TO SOME OF HER COLLEAGUES NEARLY SIX WEEKS BEFORE THE SHOOTING. FOR WEEKS, THE WORLD HAS BEEN WONDERING, DID ANYONE SEE SIGNS THIS WOULD EMERGE FROM A SEEMINGLY ORDINARY Ph.D. ST UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, WAS ALSO A KEY MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL'S THREAT ASSESSMENT TEAM. IN FACT, THESE DOCUMENTS ABC UNCOVERED SHOWED FENTON ACTUALLY WROTE THE UNIVERSITY'S POLICY ON THREAT ASSESSMENT. WHAT'S MORE, OUR AFFILIATE KMGH IS REPORTING EXCLUSIVELY, BY EARLY JUNE, FENTON NOTIFIED OTHER MEMBERS OF THE TEAM ABOUT HER CONCERNS ABOUT HOLMES' BEHAVIOR. BUT ON JUNE 10th, THREE DAYS AFTER HOLMES BOUGHT AN ASSAULT WEAPON, HE TELLS THE UNIVERSITY HE'S QUITTING. SO, THE LARGER THREAT ASSESSMENT TEAM NEVER HAD A FORMAL MEETING AND NEVER INTERVENED, THINKING THEY HAD NO CONTROL OVER HOLMES AFTER HE LEFT. AT THE VERY TIME EXPERTS SAY IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RED ALERT. THAT'S A SIGNAL YOU SHOULD INTENSIFY YOUR EFFORTS, NOT WALK AWAY. UNDER THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES, MOST WELL-TRAINED ASSESSMENT TEAMS WOULD HAVE GONE INTO ACTION. Reporter: BUT LISTEN TO WHAT THE UNIVERSITY CHANCELLOR CLAIMED EARLY LAST WEEK. TO THE BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE, WE DID EVERYTHING WE THINK WE SHOULD HAVE DONE. Reporter: WORDS UNDER FIRE NOW AS THOSE CLOSE TO THE VICTIMS NOW ASK COULD THIS ALL HAVE BEEN PREVENTED? NOW, WE REACHED OUT TO THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AND ASKED THEM, DID DR. FENTON EXPRESS ANY CONCERNS WITH SOME OF HER COLLEAGUES ON THAT THREAT ASSESSMENT TEAM? THEY'RE NOT COMMENTING, CITING A PROTECTIVE GAG ORDER FROM THE COURT. I DID TALK TO ONE OF FENTON'S NEW AATTORNEYS. AND HE'S NOT TALKING EITHER. AMY?
