The psychiatrist treating alleged Dark Knight Rises shooter James Holmes "made contact" with a University of Colorado police officer "to express concerns about her patient's behavior" several weeks before the July 20 movie theater shooting in Aurora, sources told ABC News. The network's sources do not know what action, if any, the officer — who was recently interviewed by the Aurora Police Department — took regarding the information given by Dr. Lynne Fenton. Last week, reports emerged that Fenton had also contacted her colleagues on the school's Behavioral Evaluation and Threat Assessment team (BETA) about Holmes, but the group determined that once Holmes withdrew from the school, it "had no control over him."
