As police were cordoning off the crime scene, the KMGH-TV investigative team immediately focused on the shooter and how he was able to carry out his deadly mission. Within a few hours, Investigative Reporter John Ferrugia was on the air reporting specific and exclusive details of how 24-year old James Holmes had gained access to the theater and carried out his deadly mission. In subsequent weeks, KMGH-TV team uncovered information showing that the University of Colorado Threat Assessment team had known about Holmes' mental health issues and his potential for harming others. In multiple exclusive reports Ferrugia detailed how Holmes psychiatrist had contacted not only the University "BETA Team", but University police with concerns that Holmes could be a threat because he had told her about his fantasies of "killing a lot of people". These stories made national headlines with the stories attributed the KMGH-TV.
