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.

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.
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.
