Arizona Authorities Search for Second Man in Jared Lee Loughner Tucson Mass Shooting


Arizona authorities as looking for a second individual who might be linked with the mass murder shooting yesterday that left US Rep Gabrielle Giffords in critical condition after being shot in the head, 6 dead and 11 others injured.  At last night’s police press conference,  Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik stated that police are looking for a white male, dark hair, approximately 40-50 years old. However, last night Dupnik did not go into details, not release any pics. Now, authorities are releasing the photo of the man in question.

Authorities said they are not convinced one person was behind a shooting rampage at a town hall-style event Saturday in Tucson, Ariz., that left six dead, including a federal judge, and critically wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who police said was the target of the attack.

Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, from the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, said in a statement that a second person was seen at the location of the shooting, and was possibly associated with the suspect in custody. The person was described as a Caucasian male with dark hair, approximately 40-50 years old, who was last seen wearing blue jeans and a dark blue jacket.

Details remain murky. However, the shooting occurred in a shopping center with chain stores, so video cameras were likely in the vicinity and authorities may have more footage to help them with the investigation.

Newsflash to Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik political hack, maybe you should have released the photo of the man you were looking for last night in the presser, rather than jumping to conclusions, advancing your adenda, speculating and blaming “prejudice & vitriole” for the shooting.

UPDATE I: Suspect in attack on congresswoman acted alone

Federal prosecutors brought charges Sunday against the gunman accused of attempting to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killing six people at a political event in Arizona.

Investigators said they carried out a search warrant at Jared Loughner’s home and seized an envelope from a safe with messages such as “I planned ahead,” “My assassination” and the name “Giffords” next to what appears to be the man’s signature. He allegedly purchased the Glock pistol used in the attack in November at Sportsman’s Warehouse in Tucson.

      2nd man turns out to be a cab drive that followed shooter into building because shooter stiffed him for the fare. No connection.

      A cabbie goes in cause he’s stiffed the fare after a guy with a gun gets out? I’m assuming he got paid and that’s why he left? I would be worried letting anyone in my cab with a gun like that. Suspicios to me.
