TUCSON, Ariz. -- YouTube video posted by Jared Loughner, the alleged shooter in Saturday's massacre, paint a disturbing picture.
Loughner was taken into custody shortly after the shooting at the "Congress on Your Corner" event hosted by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. A total of 19 people were shot. Six people were killed, including Judge John McCarthy Roll and a 9-year-old girl. Thirteen others, including Giffords, were wounded.
While a motive for the shooting has not been released, witnesses said Loughner was yelling names as he opened fire. One man said Giffords was clearly the target.
Although authorities have not officially released any details about Loughner, 22, sources tell 3TV the Tucson resident has some limited military experience and is quite active on the Internet, even launching his own YouTube channel back in October. Some say his videos indicated anarchist leanings. Loughner also had a MySpace page, but it was taken down shortly after he was identified as the suspect.
In a news conference Saturday evening, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik alluded in general terms to Loughner's troubled past, including brushes with the law and possible mental issues.
"Based on what we know right now, you're dealing with someone who is disaffected, angry, and a coward," said Dr. Steve Pitt, a forensic psychiatrist. "Beyond that, I think it is really, really difficult to come to any definitive conclusions based on Facebook postings or YouTube rantings."
