One of James Holmes' lawyers said at a court hearing Thursday that Holmes reached out to psychiatrist Lynne Fenton by calling the hospital switchboard, which can reach doctors after business hours.
Attorney Tamara Brady says Holmes made the call nine minutes before opening fire at an Aurora theater, killing 12 people and injuring 58. She provided no evidence to back that claim.
Hospital marketing director Brad Fixler says that the switchboard did receive a seven-second call at 12:31 a.m. on July 20. But he says the caller hung up without saying anything.
