James Holmes: Read timeline of his actions before and after Aurora theater shooting
July 19, 5:17 p.m.: Holmes allegedly photographs his ballistic gear arrayed on his bed. On top of a red sheet, it's possible to see a tactical vest on which are strapped several rifle and handgun magazines, a gas mask, a gas canister, a helmet and three guns -- a rifle, a shotgun and a handgun -- among other gear.
July 19, 6:22 p.m.: Holmes allegedly takes a photo of himself wearing a black skull cap with two red curls of hair sticking out above each ear, almost like horns. He's wearing black contact lenses that make his irises appear entirely dark and he's sticking his tongue out.
July 19, 6:25 p.m.: Holmes allegedly takes another photo of himself, this time with what a witness described as "a large toothy grin." He's holding the muzzle end of a handgun near his chin, at an angle pointing toward the ceiling. He looks gleeful.
July 19, 6:31 p.m.: Holmes allegedly continues his photo session, this time holding one of the homemade bombs found in his apartment. A unlit fuse sticks out the top of the bomb. He poses with his lips in a tight "O," as if he's blowing out the fuse.
