Detective: Accused Colorado shooter made puppets

By DAN ELLIOTT

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) -- A detective says the alleged gunman in the Colorado theater shooting acted strangely in an interview soon after the attack.

Det. Craig Appel testified Tuesday that James Holmes had paper bags over his hands to preserve gunshot residue. Holmes played with the bags as if they were puppets.

Appel said Holmes also played with a cup on the table and tried to jam a staple into an electrical outlet.

Defense attorney Daniel King asked whether Holmes had been tested for drugs or other substances.

Appel said there was no indication that he was under the influence of anything.

Appel acknowledged that Holmes' pupils' were dilated, something that had also been noted by the officer who arrested him.Detective: Accused Colorado shooter made puppets
