Examining the Aurora shooting suspect

Four days after the shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado that killed 12 people and wounded 58 more, little is known about the motives of James Holmes, the 24-year-old suspect.

Holmes, a former graduate student in neuroscience at the University of Colorado, is set to appear in court for the first time today.

Dave Cullen, the author of 'Columbine,' joins The Daily Circuit on Monday to explain why we shouldn't jump to conclusions about the shooting suspect.
