James Holmes warned a former fellow graduate student to stay away from him just over a week before he carried out a deadly attack at a Colorado movie theater in 2012.

Hillary Allen says she texted Holmes to check on him July 8, 2012, about a month after he said he was dropping out of school.

He told her he had a form of mania and that she should avoid him, saying he was "bad news bears."

Allen asked Holmes if it was manageable, and he responded: "It was. Floodgates open now."

On the stand, Allen recalled sharing with Holmes that she struggled with her own issues and asking if he was OK.

Holmes simply responded "yep" in a text right before midnight. She didn't hear from him again.
