TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — E-mails indicate the Arizona college that Jared Loughner attended was on alert and concerned he would return to the Tucson campus a week before a Jan. 8 shooting spree that killed six and wounded 13, including a congresswoman.
The Arizona Republic obtained a series of e-mails from December showing Pima Community College police planned to distribute Loughner's picture to staff members and instruct night officers to watch for the former student.
He was forced out of the college three months earlier after school officials said he was acting bizarre in class.
Loughner is charged in federal court with attempting to kill U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and two of her staffers. He is expected to face additional federal and state charges, including multiple counts of murder.
Giffords is recovering in Houston.
