We're learning more about the alleged 22-year-old gunman who shot earlier today several people at a public event in Tuscon hosted by Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, severely injuring her and several others and taking the lives of at least two others. Jared Lee Loughner had both a Myspace page and a YouTube channel that might help bring some insight into the mind of the man.
About 15-20 shots were reported to have been fired at the Safeway where the event was taking place. A 9 mm Glock was recovered at the scene.
We know that Loughner was once a volunteer for the Tucson Festival of Books.
Loughner's Myspace page has since been taken down but not before information and screen grabs of his page were captured. Two of those photos are above. His page listed his interests as "reading, and I studied grammar. Conscience dreams were a great study in college."
Five videos were posted on Loughner's YouTube channel (username: Classitup10) in November and December of 2010. The videos are bizarre and nonsensical. In the videos, which are simply text, graphics and music, Loughner talks about dreaming, "currency government," religion, mind control and other things, not much of which makes much sense. He also claims this in one of the videos: "I define terrorist."
Watch them for yourself, AFTER THE JUMP.
