WASHINGTON — The FBI and Homeland Security Department advised law-enforcement officials around the country they’ve uncovered no information to indicate that more shooting sprees were being plotted for movie theaters around the country.

According to an intelligence bulletin obtained today by The Associated Press, investigators had not figured out the suspected shooter’s motivations for killing 12 people and injuring dozens of others during a midnight showing of the new Batman movie in a suburban Denver theater.

Federal officials and local police in Aurora have said there was no indication the shooting was connected to terrorism.

Security at some movie theaters around the country has been increased after the deadly Colorado attack. And some events around the world for the premiere of the new Batman movie have been canceled or scaled back.

Shortly after the shootings, police arrested James Holmes, a 24-year-old former neuroscience graduate student with no criminal record.
