Colorado Theatre Shooter Attacked in Prison

An inmate assaulted Colorado theater shooter James Holmes and a security officer at the state penitentiary, officials said Friday.

Adrienne Jacobson, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department Corrections, told The Denver Post that inmate Mark “Slim” Daniels, 27, lunged at Holmes and took a few shots at him while the officer was escorting Holmes through a hallway on Oct. 8. Holmes was not injured.

“It was in passing,” she said.
