Colorado Shooter on Vicodin at the Time of the Shooting
James E. Holmes the shooter in the Colorado Movie Massacre was on prescription drugs at the time of the crime says a recent Denver Channel 7 source. Holmes had taken the popular pain medication called Vicodin, only two hours before the crime.
Vicodin is often used on dental patients who have had their wisdom teeth taken out, or for other types of general pain relief.
The drug is also a very popular street drug used by people who abuse prescription pain medication and is available at almost all Pain Clinics.
