Ladder used to peer into Colo. suspect's apartment

AURORA, Colo. (AP) -

FBI agents and police used a hook and ladder fire truck to reach the Denver suburb apartment window of the suspect in a mass shooting at a movie theater.

They put a camera at the end of 12-foot pole inside the apartment and were watching footage Friday morning of what the camera saw on a small television screen.

Television video showed an officer in a helmet and vest atop the fire truck boom smashing the window of the third-floor apartment where 24-year-old James Holmes lives.

He's in custody and the FBI says there's no indication the shooting is tied to any terrorist groups.

The apartment is about four miles from the theater where at least 12 people were killed and 50 were wounded.
