AURORA, Colo. — Authorities plan to shut down streets around the Colorado theater shooting suspect’s “booby-trapped” apartment around 7 p.m. central time. 

At that time, tactical teams plan to use robots to detonate the explosive devices in 24-year-old James E. Holmes’ apartment. 

Police started searching his apartment immediately following the movie theater shooting.

Authorities said many other medical students live in the building.

When police apprehended Holmes, he told them about the explosives in his nearby apartment.

The bomb squad immediately evacuated the apartment complex and began searching for a bomb.

Police said it may take hours or days to safely infiltrate the apartment unit.
