Loughner to be sentenced for Arizona mass shooting
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The man who went on a shooting rampage in Arizona last year that left six people dead and 13 others wounded, including former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, is due to be sentenced Thursday.
The hearing marks the first chance for victims to confront Jared Lee Loughner in court since his January 2011 attack at a Giffords political event outside a Tucson, Ariz., grocery store.
Prosecutors say some victims will comment before U.S. District Judge Larry Burns sentences Loughner. It wasn’t known whether Giffords or her husband will attend. Three shooting victims have told The Associated Press that they intend to comment at the hearing.
