AZ Star: 'Person of interest' suspected shooter's cab driver

TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - The man sought by the FBI and Pima County Sheriffs deputies as a "person of interest" turned out to be the suspect's cab driver, The Arizona Daily Star is reporting.

The man told detectives he gave Jared Loughner a ride to the shopping center where the shooting took place on Oracle and Ina roads.

The cab driver walked with Loughner into the Safeway store so the suspect could get cash to pay the fare, according to the Arizona Daily Star report.

More from the article:

 

Records substantiate the driver dropped Loughner off at 9:59 a.m., Kastigar said. Loughner was picked up nearby. The first report of a shooting came in 10:11 a.m. and paramedics were on scene at 10:16 a.m., Kastigar said.

FBI Director Robert Mueller said he expects federal charges to be filed Sunday afternoon against Loughner.

There's a possibility the charges may be related to domestic terrorism, Mueller said.

    Our Saturday weather was right on par with what we have been dealing with across central and south Alabama all week long... it was hot (temperatures made their way into the low/mid 90s), it was humid (heat index values went above 100° in many towns) and we saw some relief from the heat thanks to a few isolated areas of rain.
