CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Using a cell phone, James Holmes took photos of himself the night police say he shot up a Colorado movie theater.

He stuck out his tongue, smiled and posed with a Glock.

Police showed the photos in court on Wednesday, along with pictures of the theater they say Holmes took a month before the attack.

One photo included an exit door like the one investigators say Holmes propped open the night of the attack, which left 12 dead and 70 injured.

The testimony came as a hearing to determine if Holmes will stand trial wound down. Defense attorneys announced they would not call any witnesses. They had been granted permission to call two witnesses to talk about Holmes' mental state.
