DENVER — In the hours after the Aurora, Colo., movie massacre on July 20, faculty and classmates at suspected gunman James E. Holmes' university were horrified to realize he had once been among them. More than 1,500 emails to and from Holmes were made public Wednesday. The emails — released by the University of Colorado-Denver, where he had been a neuroscience doctoral student — were from Holmes' two university email accounts. An additional 2,300 internal university staff emails surrounding Holmes' alleged attack also were released.

Citing unidentified law enforcement sources, multiple news outlets reported Wednesday that mass-shooting suspect James E. Holmes mailed a notebook before Friday's early-morning theater massacre to the University of Colorado's medical campus, where he had been a doctoral neuroscience student. The university said it received a suspicious package Monday, three days after the assault in Aurora, Colo., that left 12 dead and 58 injured. The package was "immediately investigated and turned over to authorities within hours of delivery," a university statement said.

Perhaps it was hungry, or bored, or wanted to check out evening classes, or maybe it was buffalo hunting. But a 200-pound black bear wandered onto the University of Colorado campus at Boulder on Thursday, leading authorities on a brief chase before it was tranquilized. The bear drew dozens of student onlookers from across the campus, whose sports teams are called the Buffaloes, before it dashed up into a tree for safety. “There was a woman on campus who was putting money in her meter when she felt the bear brush by her,” Brittany Anas, a reporter who covered the story for the local newspaper, the Daily Camera, told the Los Angeles Times.

The University of Colorado professor who was fired after likening victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks to a Nazi leader cannot return to the classroom, a state judge decided Tuesday. Ethnic studies professor Ward L. Churchill had won a lawsuit in April alleging that the university had retaliated against him for exercising his free-speech rights -- not for the academic misconduct of which he was subsequently accused. Yet the jury also awarded him only $1 in damages.
