James Eagan Holmes was in the school’s doctoral neuroscience program and was in the process of withdrawing at the time of the shooting, university officials said. Holmes had enrolled at the university in June 2011.
As a grad student you have an opportunity to work for the university in the research program for the programs that you’re studying. He worked in the neurosciences program. It is a paid position quips university spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery.
According to Aurora Police Chief Daniel Oates the suspect’s sole interaction with the police department was an October 2011 summons for speeding.
