Colorado theatre shooter James Holmes asked police if children were hurt
Holmes charged with 166 counts of 1st-degree murder, attempted murder and an explosives offense
A video played for jurors in the trial of Colorado theatre shooter James Holmes includes a dazed-sounding Holmes asking detectives, "There weren't any children hurt, were there?"
The video shows detectives interviewing Holmes at the Aurora Police Department about two hours after the July 2012 attack, which killed 12 people and injured 70 others. Prosecutors played the video Monday.

Detectives didn't answer Holmes' question directly but said, "We'll get to that."
Det. Chuck Mehl testified later that Holmes had seen a sign in the police department that said "Crimes Against Children Unit."
Holmes is charged with murder and attempted murder.
His attorneys acknowledge he was the shooter but say he was mentally ill. He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
Prosecutors say Holmes was sane.
