Your post is all over the shop.
His behaviour is totally consistent with someone that's had a sudden mental breakdown, brought on by schizophrenia:
What are the symptoms of schizophrenia?
One of the most disturbing and puzzling characteristics of schizophrenia is the sudden onset of its psychotic symptoms. The following are the most common symptoms of schizophrenia. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:
Distorted perception of reality (i.e., difficulty telling dreams from reality)
Confused thinking (i.e., confusing television with reality)
Detailed and bizarre thoughts and ideas
Suspiciousness and/or paranoia (fearfulness that someone, or something, is going to harm them)
Hallucinations (seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not real such as hearing voices telling them to do something)
Delusions (ideas that seem real but are not based in reality)
Severe anxiety and/or fearfulness
Flat affect (lack of emotional expression when speaking) or inability to manage emotions
Difficulty in performing functions at work and/or school
Exaggerated self-worth and/or unrealistic sense of superiority of one's self
Social withdrawal (severe problems in making and keeping friends )
Disorganized or catatonic behavior (suddenly becoming agitated and confused, or sitting and staring, as if immobilized)
That's pretty much Holmes to a T.
As for a few witnesses saying there were multiple shooters, well, you pretty much explain that yourself... people in these situations get things wrong, frequently. Other than a few initial witnesses statements there's no other evidence. And even less evidence of him having anything more than a one bedroom apartment, much less a roommate.
You also jump to the same silly conclusion a lot of the conspiracy minded folks on ATS have: his behaviour doesn't make sense - evidence of a conspiracy.
It should be fairly evident that someone that shoots up a cinema isn't rational.
Unless you're saying, "the shooting and the bombs were rational; the getting caught wasn't" - which to me is a pretty insane conclusion.
So his behavior is totally consistent with a mental breakdown brought on by Schizophrenia?
How would you know?
Are you a certified mental health professional who has met James Holmes face to face? Or perhaps you have studied the epistemological aspects of the Diagnostics and Statistics Manual for Mental Disorders, and cross-referenced your expert observations of the person in question with the current definitions of the DSM 4?
Also, how would you know who shot up the movie theatre? I suppose you have witnesses who can positively identify Holmes as the shooter? No? Perhaps you have some security camera footage that will prove Holmes was the man in question through facial analysis? No? Hmm... You definitely have the forensics and ballistics evidence that prove there was a lone gunman and that that individual was Mr. Holmes?

I would know the same way you would, by hearing what other people are saying. Unless you ACTUALLY know the guy you have not special info.
And again, I say, how do you know he wasn't the guy? What evidence do you have that someone is lying?
The point is that, unless you have actual evidence that someone is lying, then the weight of evidence is CLEARLY that he is the lone shooter.
A few bits of crap reporting and a few confused statements do not a conspiracy make.
Have the same standards for yourself. You don't have ballistics; the cops do and they claim he was the shooter. You haven't been to his apartment; the cops have and say it was boobytrapped.
So, my evidence is the police, the majority of witnesses and the courts.
