PHOENIX (AP) — Nearly 3,000 pages of documents released by an Arizona community college show how school administrators struggled to keep up with a flood of media requests and protect its own image after the January shooting rampage in Tucson.
Shortly after the Jan. 8 shooting, The Associated Press requested all of Pima Community College's emails mentioning Jared Lee Loughner in 2010, prompting the school to hand over six emails from late December.
Earlier this month, the AP expanded that request by asking for all emails mentioning Loughner that were received or sent by school employees from 2005-2011.
Loughner began attending classes at the college in 2005, but he was kicked out because of behavior campus police considered disturbing. He was told to get a mental health evaluation or not return.
