A gunman accused of shooting an Arizona congresswoman and killing six people at a political event in Tucson is scheduled to make his initial court appearance Monday in Phoenix.
Federal prosecutors say 22-year-old suspect Jared Loughner will make his initial appearance at 2 p.m. Monday before a magistrate judge at the Sandra Day O’Connor Courthouse in Phoenix.
Loughner remains in federal custody after Saturday’s shooting outside a Tucson grocery store that wounded 14 including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Prosecutors say the federal court will set a date for the suspect’s preliminary hearing and detention hearing.
