ABC NEWS BREAKING NEWS COVERAGE

At 4:53 a.m., ET, "ABC World News Now" anchors Rob Nelson and Paula Farris led a special report that was broadcast (WATCH).

At 7:00 a.m., ET, "Good Morning America" began special coverage anchored by George Stephanopoulos, Josh Elliott and Amy Robach, with senior justice correspondent Pierre Thomas, chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross, chief health and medical editor Dr. Richard Besser and ABC News consultant and former FBI agent Brad Garrett reporting.

George Stephanopoulos opened the broadcast with all of the key details: "Let's get right to that breaking news - a horrific scene just east of Denver where a night at the movies has turned into a nightmare. As we said, at least 14 dead, 50 injured. The suspect, a young man, 24 years-old. Eyewitnesses describe him as armed for battle -- a rifle, a handgun, a shotgun and smoke bombs -- wearing a bullet proof vest and a gas mask -- police believe now he acted alone, but they continue to search the entire area. The suspect's apartment complex has been evacuated -- reports that explosives were found there."

"GMA" spoke to many eyewitnesses throughout the morning. Amy Robach spoke to Lamar Lane, a 21-year-old who was inside the theatre. George Stephanopoulos had a phone interview with Nicole Williams, a spokesperson for Swedish Medical Center, where a number of the victims were rushed right after the shooting.

At 8:06 a.m., ET, ABC News reported that the James Holmes had been identified as the identity of the suspected shooter and reported it on ABCNews.com. George Stephanopoulos reported the news on "GMA" at 8:07 a.m., ET.

In the 8:00 a.m., ET hour, Amy Robach spoke with another eyewitness, a 15-year-old girl who saw the shooter, and Josh Elliott did an interview with a 25-year-old eyewitness.

A San Diego woman identifying herself as James Holmes' mother spoke briefly with ABC News reporter Matt Mosk this morning. She had awoken unaware of the news of the shooting and had not been contacted by authorities. She immediately expressed concern that her son may have been involved, saying "You have the right person." "I need to call the police," she added. "I need to fly out to Colorado."
