By Emi Kolawole

2:07 PM

Federal law enforcement officials identified the gunman who shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and killed six others at a campaign event in Tucson Saturday as Jared Loughner, who appears to have left a trail of Internet postings, including some that express convoluted observations about government.
