Jared Loughner Indicted in Tucson Shooting
The first indictments against Jared Lee Loughner came out today, with plenty more to follow.
The indictments from a federal grand jury charge him with the attempted assassination of Gabrielle Giffords and the attempted murder of two of her aides, reports the Arizona Republic. Still to come are federal murder charges in the spree that killed six and wounded 13.
"Today's charges are just the beginning of our legal action. We are working diligently to ensure that our investigation is thorough and that justice is done for the victims and their families," U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke said in a prepared statement.
Loughner, 22, who is accused of killing six people and wounding 13 others outside a grocery store north of Tucson on Jan. 8, has not entered a formal plea but is expected to do so in federal court in Phoenix on Monday.
