Reports: Colorado Movie Shooter ID’d as James Holmes – (NOT Mohammed Alam)

UPDATE: I contacted 9 News in Colorado to determine if they initially reported the gunman was an Iranian and received the following response:

Thank you for writing 9NEWS about this youtube video. We did not report an Iranian immigrant had been arrested, or was even a suspect. This video has been edited and is not accurate.

As we initially stated, we are simply reporting what is being reported on the internet and the name of the shooter was, at the time of the report, unreported by authorities.



UPDATE: A new report has come out naming James Holmes as the Colorado shooter. The initial report that the shooter was an Iranian names Mohammed Alam apparently is either an error by News 9, or a hoax.



Apparently, Channel 9 news in Colorado initially reported the name and nationality of the shooter who was arrested for the horrific Colorado shooting as Iranian born Mohammad Alam. The following entry was reportedly copied and pasted from the News 9 website earlier this morning.

NOTE: It is undetermined if this was a hoax or an erroneous report by News 9. THE SHOOTER IS NOT IRANIAN! 

AURORA – There is one suspect in custody after 14 people were shot and killed at the Century 16 Movie Theaters at the Aurora Town Center.

There were at least 50 people injured to Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates.

Oates says 10 died at the theater and four died at the area hospital.

Nicole Williams, with Swedish Medical Center, says the hospital was allerted to a mass casualty incident at 1:15 a.m. Friday.

Williams says the hospital was told to prepare for at least 20 patients.

According to witnesses, the shooter kicked in the emergency exit door in theater 9, threw some sort of disorienting smoke bombs and started shooting.

The captured shooter has been identified as Mohammad Alam, an Iranian immigrant. The identity of the other shooter is still unknown, Oates states.

A screen shot of the report is captured a few seconds into this video:


The name and nationality of of the shooter has since been removed from the Chanel 9 (Colorado) website and listening to a report on Richmond, Va radio station WRVA-1140 a short while ago, the shooter is being identified as a 24 year old white male.

Apparently, the name and nationality of the shooter has been removed from news reports with no indication as to the reason. Was News 9 erroneously reporting the identity of the individual or was the identity removed because the authorities are attempting to track down possible friends and associates of the alleged shooter and attempting to keep the identity hidden.

Or, for the conspiracy theorist readers, is the government trying to hide a connection to radical Islam?

The truth will eventually come out, but if the shooter is the Iranian identified initially by News 9, reporting that he is a 24 year old white male is at best misleading.

NOTE: The shooter IS a 24 year old white male identified by police as James Holmes.

Virginia Right! is simply reporting what is on the net. You be the judge.

    There were likely 2shooters, the Iranian muslum influene and the “extremely white male American”. Do not underestimate what is going on in this country and the media. Believe nothing from a Democrat media, they will lie about anything to finalize their “great final plan”. Believe it.

  2. TonyR62 says:

    Interesting that the hate-mongers on this site want to attribute the shooting to a Muslim even though there is no evidence. Don’t let facts get in the way of your hate!

      I guess you can’t be bothered to read a post before you comment on it, huh?

    • TDog says:

      Hate is what motivated this kind of act, recognizing the kind of malignant mindset that leads to this kind of evil is actually called REASON! You libs are nothing less than willfully ignorant Jackasses… may your blindness not lead to our demise. Freedom is kept by those who have open eyes!

    The “Mohammed Alam” name was borne out of another 9News story, about two friends who went on a 2,800 mile taxi journey. The driver’s name was Mohammed Alam.

    So, yes; it’s a hoax.

    I didn’t see the original YouTube video, since it’s been taken down by the uploader, but I’m curious about it. What did it contain exactly? Just a screengrab of a news story with his name in it, an audio soundbite, or a video clip?

    i think fame is what motivated this act out of selfishness could be part of his sickness or it could be some thing or someone in his mind or reality that helped make him succeed in such an act.some people are just simply villains.some seek a worthy opponent ,some just seek violence as a comfort.

  5. anthony says:

    well if there are people that wouldn’t mind a out of the blue real life scene from a movie ,you always hear people screaming telling the characters “don’t open that door b***h,aha ,that b***h was stupid,i would of just left,out the mother f**king window.”well in this situation nobody new what to do at all.

  6. Nike Free Run 2 is a great fashion statement that is something everyone likes in a Nike shoe. Many wearers including myself found Nike Free 3.0 a bit tight at first but a decent fit when worn for a longer period. Many wearers found Nike Air Max 2012 to be lightweight. However itsseems that just as many saw Nike Air Presto more as a fashion statement than a shoe they would use for serious training or physical training. Nike Free 4.0 durability which is a concern considering its price tag.
