Suspect in Arizona shooting in court

The 22-year-old Arizona man accused of shooting 20 people while trying to assassinate a U.S. congresswoman has made his first court appearance to face federal charges, Voice of America reported. Jared Loughner was in shackles Monday as he entered a Phoenix courtroom under heavy security. With his head shaved and wearing a prison uniform, he told the court he understood his rights. Lough­ner’s court appearance came two days after the mass shooting in Tucson that killed six people and left U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona critically wounded. Thirteen others also were wounded.
