SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The California family of the suspect in a mass shooting at a Colorado movie theater says their hearts go out to those involved.

Police in San Diego read a statement Friday morning from family members of 24-year-old James Holmes, who graduated from high school in the San Diego area.

The family asked the media to respect their privacy. They say they're cooperating with authorities in San Diego and Aurora, Colo., and are trying to process everything.

San Diego police spokeswoman Andra Brown says there's nothing to suggest the family had any involvement.

A spokeswoman for the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver says Holmes was a student there until last month but didn't know why he withdrew.

My Heart & Prayers go out to the Families & Victims of this shooting. Why this Gutless INSANE Idiot would do something like this. It's a sad day. That's why I'm glad we have the right to carry and protect ourselfs now. But when Idiots like this do something like this groups want to take away our rights But not thinking that if our rights are taken away That the CRIMINALS will ALWAYS carry as they always do. Which will cause things like this to keep on happing. It's a shame that someone watching the movie didn't have a CCW and could have possibly saved lives by taking the NUT CASE out.
