AURORA, Colo. — Police in Colorado say that all hazards have been removed from the apartment of theater shooting suspect James Holmes and that residents in surrounding buildings can return home.

Aurora police, FBI agents and bomb squad technicians spent much of Saturday entering the apartment booby-trapped with explosives and unknown liquids.

Police said Saturday evening that all the hazards have been taken to a disposal site.

All residents can now return to their homes except for those in Holmes' apartment building, where FBI agents are collecting evidence.

A fourth-floor apartment in a nearby building offered a view into Holmes' unit. Visible on a wall in Holmes' apartment was a poster with the words "Soldiers of Misfortune" and several figures in various shooting positions playing paintball.

Some were wearing paintball masks.
