More warning signs on day of shooting

Posted By Christopher Francis - email

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A sheriff's official tells The Associated Press that the suspect in Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' shooting wrote the words "Die" and an expletive beginning with "b" on a note found in his home.

Pima County Chief Rick Kastigar said authorities believe the note was a reference to Giffords. It was found alongside other menacing notes including "I planned ahead," "My assassination" and the name "Giffords."

Authorities are learning other new information about the events leading up to the assassination attempt. Sheriff Clarence Dupnik tells the AP that on the morning of the shooting, Jared Loughner's father saw his son take a black bag out of a car trunk.

The sheriff says the father approached Loughner, and he mumbled something and took off running. The father got in his truck and chased his son into the desert as he fled on foot.
