Release set for police photos from Tucson rampage


Authorities are set to release more than 300 photos on Tuesday that investigators took in the aftermath of the Tucson shooting rampage that killed six people and wounded former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 12 others.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department says many photos show the parking lot of the shopping center where the shooting took place in January 2011.

The photos also include images of the handgun and high-capacity pistol magazine used by Jared Lee Loughner to carry out the attack.

The images are being released nearly two months after the sheriff's department made public roughly 2,700 pages of investigative reports examining the shooting.

The reports marked the public's first view into documents that authorities had kept private since the attack.
