Tucson Shooter Jared Loughner Found Mentally Incompetent to Stand Trial

TUCSON – A federal judge Wednesday agreed with two doctors that suspected Tucson shooter Jared Loughner is not competent to stand trial, and he will be hospitalized in a facility in Springfield, Mo., to receive treatment.

At about 11:45 a.m., Loughner started rubbing his forehead, he lowered his head and rocked back and forth, according to those in the courtroom. He looked at the judge and blurted, “Thanks for the freak show. I saw her die in front of me.”

Loughner was then escorted from the courtroom by U.S. marshals.

 

Loughner will not be released from custody while he is being treated, and he could remain hospitalized indefinitely if he does not get well but is determined to be a danger to himself or others, according to those familiar with federal law.
