‘Batman’ Shooter Got Federal Grant

The University of Colorado says shooting suspect James Holmes had a federal grant to study neuroscience.

University spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery said Saturday that Holmes was one of six neuroscience students at the school to get National Institutes of Health grant money. She didn’t know how much money he got.

The NIH says the university decides who gets the grants. Criteria for receiving the grant weren’t immediately clear.

The university says Holmes enrolled in the program last year and was withdrawing. Montgomery says Holmes didn’t indicate why he was withdrawing.
