Jared Lee Loughner's Mom Says She Took His Shotgun Away on Advice of Police

Thousands of pages of documents related to the care released


The mother of Jared Lee Loughner, the man who went on a shooting rampage that killed six and wounded former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, said she took away his shotgun after school officials warned her about his increasingly odd and angry behavior, according to thousands of pages of records released Wednesday about the case.

In an interview with Det. Mark O'Dell of the Pima County Sheriff's Department, Amy Loughner said her son had been acting strangely for about a year, often talking to himself, and was angry with the government, though she did not say why.
