CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — The families of victims of the Colorado theater shooting sat through emotional testimony Monday from police officers who tried to save the lives of the wounded.

One sergeant recalled during the hearing for suspected gunman James Holmes that he checked and did not find a pulse for the youngest victim, 6-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan.

Another who drove the wounded to the hospital said he had to stop one man worried about his 7-year-old daughter from jumping out of the moving patrol car.

A bearded Holmes didn't appear to show any emotion. One woman sat with her head buried in her hands during the testimony about Veronica.

Investigators say Holmes opened fire during the midnight showing of the latest Batman movie on July 20, killing 12 people and wounding dozens.
