The reports on NPR say the following about the shooter:
The suspect ran off and was tackled by a bystander. He was taken into custody. Witnesses described him as in his late teens or early 20s.
Wow...a young kid? That's a bit surprising. I was profiling the guy (wrongly sure) as some 40-something dude who lost his house/wife/dog/mind recently and was lashing out in anger and confusion.
But it was a young pup? Damn...
Yeah, the kid will spill the beans soon enough on why he did it.
Here's to hoping he doesn't explain he is a conspiracy theorist all into Alex Jones or worse "ATS".
PS- Thanks for the info.

The drug cartels can get people of any age hooked and turned into a monster for their cause...
Or hold their family hostage on terms of them carrying out the crime..
The shooting occurred at a Safeway supermarket in northwest Tucson as Ms. Giffords hosted an event, called “Congress on Your Corner, to allow members of the 8th Congressional District to meet her individually. She has held several events since first taking office in January 2007. At one such event in 2009, a protester was removed by police when his pistol fell on the supermarket floor.
Last March, her Tucson office was vandalized a few hours after the House vote overhauling the nation’s health care system, the authorities said. Earlier events in Tucson, Oro Valley, Green Valley, Sierra Vista, and Douglas had attracted between 75 and 150 people, according to a statement announcing the event. This was her first event since her re-election to a third term in November.
