Neighbors of the accused Colorado theater shooter are being allowed back home after investigators spent days combing the apartment of James Holmes.

Residents were called Wednesday evening and told they were free to return home. Their three-story brick building was evacuated Friday, hours after the theater shooting that killed 12 and wounded 58. Investigators said Holmes had rigged his entire apartment with a complex series of booby traps that took authorities days to dismantle.

A few residents ducked under yellow crime scene tape flanking the building Wednesday evening, carrying shopping bags stuffed with groceries and clothes while crews repaired a door damaged during the investigation.

The ground was still littered with shattered glass from Holmes' apartment, and a work crew was hammering plywood over the windows. Residents declined to comment.
