DENVER (AP) -- Five people who were wounded in the Colorado movie theater shootings remain in critical condition.

University of Colorado Hospital said Thursday it had four patients in critical condition. The Medical Center of Aurora had one critically injured patient as of Wednesday. Hospital officials didn't immediately respond to calls Thursday seeking an update.

Twelve people were killed and 58 were injured in the July 20 shootings. Eleven of the injured were listed in critical condition shortly after the shooting.

Suspect James Holmes is being held without bail on suspicion of first-degree murder. Police say he opened fire at an Aurora theater during a midnight showing of the latest Batman movie.
