SERAPH Profiler Dale Yeager on ABC WPVI 6 Action News Movie Shooting in Aurora, Colorado


VIDEO A closer look: Who are mass shooters?

John Rawlins – July 20, 2012 (WPVI) — 24-year-old James Holmes was taken into custody shortly after he allegedly walked into a crowded Colorado movie theater and opened fire – killing 12 and injuring 59 others.

Chester Police Commissioner Joseph Bail has studied mass shootings here and abroad. He co-wrote a book about the 2007 Virginia Tech incident that cost 32 lives.

Bail says arriving police officers confront the unknown like how many shooters and what kind of weapons, so they must be hyper alert to threats.
