Tucson, AZ—He’s accused of killing Federal Chief Judge John Roll, gravly wounding “Blue Dog” Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. The suspect was apparently tackled by bystanders once he ran out of ammunition. There were 16 others killed or wounded by a man that has a curious philosophy. A nine year-old child was also killed by the gunman. The Gunman, Jared Lochner is 22 year-old.
Lochner like to read. His favorites include, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’, “Mein Kamph”, “The Communist Manifesto”, “Animal Farm” and “To Kill A Mockingbird” The picture of Lochner above was taken when he was a volunteer at a book festival.
Lochner has a YouTube Chanel that has three uploaded videos that seem somewhat incoherent about currency, gold and government.
Lochner is 5’1O” , 155 Lbs, with blue eyes and brown hair. He wears contacts or glasses. Lochner has misdemeanor arrest record and had successfully participated in a diversion program that resulted in dismissal of the charge in the Marana city court.
I’m not sure who Lochner’s target was or his motivation. Frankly he appears to be somewhat deranged and delusional in his thinking. I be shocked to hear that that Lochner does not have a history of mental illness.
We will have to wait to hear more about this twisted soul as the investigation continues. Police will be serving search warrants and doing a massive investigation into Lochner’s background.
Here is a photo of Lochner’s residence I snapped from Google Maps.
From Lochner's profile:
