Gabrielle Giffords John Roll Jared Loughner

Thoughts and Prayers for Rep. Giffords & Other Victims
FACEBOOK PAGE:, Arizona - An initial portrait of the man accused of shooting Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the head in an attack that also killed six people outside a Tucson grocery store slowly began to emerge, as authorities described a young man with a troubled past and neighbors recalled a 22-year-old who often kept to himself. One former classmate said the accused gunman, Jared Loughner, often did his own thing. Another described him as a student who disrupted class with occasional outbursts. Neighbors said Loughner wasn't hostile toward anyone but certainly didn't warm up to anyone, either. "He was a guy in high school who definitely had his opinions on stuff and didn't seem to care what people thought of him," said Grant Wiens, 22, who told The Associated Press on Saturday he went to high school and had a class at Pima Community College with Loughner. Loughner was in custody Saturday after authorities said he opened fire outside a grocery store as Giffords, a Democrat, met with voters. The rampage left the congresswoman wounded. Arizona's chief federal judge, a 9-year-old girl and four others were killed. Authorities said the accused gunman targeted the three-term congresswoman, but an exact motivation was not immediately known. - AMANDA LEE MYERS
