DENVER -

The University of Colorado at Denver has released thousands of documents that may relate to the man accused in the Colorado theater shootings, but much of the material appears to be heavily redacted.
    
More than 2,000 records were released Wednesday after news organizations, including The Associated Press, requested them to learn about James Holmes' year at the school.
    
A significant number of the documents appeared to be entirely redacted by the school. The university cited federal laws that bar the release of academic or medical information.
    
Holmes was a graduate student in neuroscience at the university before the July 20 shooting.
    
He is accused of opening fire inside a suburban Aurora theater during a showing of "The Dark Knight Rises." Twelve people were killed and 58 others were injured.
    
Holmes is charged with multiple first-degree murder and attempted murder counts. He has yet to enter a plea.
