A judge overseeing the criminal case against the suspect in the movie theater shooting has ordered the University of Colorado Denver not to release his school records.

Authorities say former neuroscience graduate student James Holmes killed 12 people and injured 58 when he opened fire at a midnight showing of the new Batman movie last Friday.

Numerous media organizations, including The Associated Press, filed open records requests for school records about Holmes.

But in an order signed Monday and released by the school Thursday in response to an open records request by the AP, District Court Judge William Blair Sylvester said releasing the information would impede the investigation.
