-- -- -- We're live outside the movie theater in Aurora Colorado.
-- -- Fifty people are injured after a gunman opens fire in a packed movie theater not -- during the premiere of the new bat man film and at this moment police are at the suspect's apartment but right now.
They can't go in and investigate.
They -- -- it -- been booby trapped with explosive.
-- Mike Tobin is live at the scene might what's the latest at the -- Well right now it's a pretty quiet scene out here -- and as you look over my right shoulder you can see what appears to be a red light burning inside the apartment -- James holds.
You can see where some of the glass was broken away and that's where the bomb squads and fire crews got up there in the basket we've got reports of one person actually stepped inside.
But we know that they stuck the camera inside the window they got a look at what the police chief has described as a vexing problem something he's never seen before.
A series of trip wires hooked up to what appear to be incendiary devices -- firebombs.
Some kind of on -- unnamed -- caller unidentified chemical.
It jars filled with ammunition rounds and out what appear to be mortar rounds as well there has been some discussion of sending robots.
Inside that apartment possibly could to conduct controlled -- detonations.
Of whatever is inside of that apartment but police appear to be in no hurry right now to get inside that apartment so they really have a good plan.
For what they've got inside there and how they're going to defuse all of that you're at the police chief talking about -- getting some help from the feds.
Some other experts who can come in and look at the pictures of the video that they got from inside -- that apartment building.
And make sure that they have a -- plan to go inside -- what they don't wanna do is injure any personnel.
They don't want to cause any further destruction to property as something they clearly don't wanna do is destroy what should be an abundant supply of evidence inside of that apartment so what we've seen from police right now is that they have secured the perimeter around five different apartment buildings in -- surrounding real estate.
We've seen a few police out here but for the most part all they're doing is securing the perimeter.
All of the fire crews to the big ladder trucks are gone the bomb squads are gone.
Tactical police are all gone from the scene here right now all they're doing is keeping people from getting inside that apartment building -- -- about my camera earlier today that one of the neighbors who live full and live below are list below homes.
Last night she heard the music complain loudly over and over and over again and -- she actually went upstairs and knocked on the door to town to stop -- the music saw the door was open under slightly Jack and she almost went in and have and I wonder area.
It that was and they had to sit just think how lucky she is -- -- booby -- that she didn't walk and.
-- that is just remarkable possibly the music was intended to draw someone inside the apartment.
Possibly the music was meant to set up an alibi -- people said they heard music coming from his apartment that could have been a distraction the ever intended to get away at all.
So it's hard to tell what exactly was going on in his mind.
And whether the music was set up on some kind of a timer of -- one of -- computers so many questions still need to BM program.
Nice area I'm in the apartment building but tell me a little bit about the area and where this is I understand that CN neuroscience bad.

Kind of contact the police and police have been taking them in drips and drabs.
Back into the apartment buildings surrounding the one.
Now bush the main apartment building where the suspect lived.
No one's allowed to go back into that building but the surrounding -- some of the people have been able to come and go we've seen if you please go into the buildings.
For the most part just to check on lights that are burning make sure knows where they should be.
When he heard any information from any of the neighbors mention destructive I realize it was pretty much to evacuate the area anyone who knows him.
What we're seeing is just mostly through different reports and I've seen over the Internet but again you get back to that description of a quiet guy.
Didn't seem to get along -- people kept to himself probably spent a lot of time up in that apartment on his computer.
Planning whatever yea he intended next given what we know now -- now know that he ends.
So we don't know why the bad -- will be why the midnight movie you know or why now we -- -- Israeli's right now I'm an espy investigation but nothing is sort of nothing additional -- we can piece together tonight on that.
