AURORA, Colo. - A controlled explosion conducted by a police bomb squad defeated trip wires in the booby-trapped apartment of the man suspected in Friday's mass shooting at a Denver-area movie theater, local police said Saturday.

Authorities believe they may now enter James Holmes' apartment, Aurora Police Sergeant Cassidee Carlson said.

"We have been successful in disabling a second triggering device," Carlson said. "Although not certain, we are hopeful we have eliminated the remaining major threats. We will not know this until we enter the apartment.
