Frenzy surrounds Ariz. shooting suspect's hearing

Jan 10, 2011 11:43:00 PM - thestate.com
Throngs of reporters waited hours Monday to get their first look at the mysterious man accused of a deadly shooting rampage that left Rep. Gabrielle Giffords critically wounded.

When the doors finally opened to U.S. Magistrate Lawrence Anderson's chambers, there was a mad rush for the wooden benches. Reporters elbowed their way past courtroom artists clutching their sketch pads, law clerks and more than a dozen stern-looking U.S. marshals. One man was kicked out after he touched an electronic device he was holding.

The room buzzed with whispered conversations.

Then Jared Loughner walked into the room. Everything fell silent.

Wearing a tan prison uniform and handcuffs, the 22-year-old looked vacantly toward the back of the packed courtroom; his deep-set eyes seemed unfocused. A pink gash stood out from the hairline of his shaved head.
