there is new information tonight about the alleged shooter,
loughner. from the
he attended where some of the people he encountered came away believing he was seriously unstable and where he was finally asked to leave. our own
joins us from that safeway in
, the scene of the shooting on saturday. mike, good evening.
good evening, brian. how are you? first, a new development in the case. police here in
say a man walking his dog this morning found a
ammunition, believed to be the same bag that randy loughner described his son carrying the morning of the shootings. in the meantime, officials at
pima community college
spoke exclusively with nbc news about their former student. from
pima community college
, more than 50 pages of records covering four major incidents in the past year involving
loughner, including seven separate contacts with
. the incidents include complaints by classmates about how creepy loughner was, saying things like why don't we just strap bombs to babies? and fears that confrontations initiated by loughner might become physical. no surprise to classmate alex catonious.
i was scared myself. i mean, he just had this aura that was creepy and unpredictable.
school records show loughner was warned several times about his disruptive behavior. teachers, classmates and police noticed his confused look and bizarre talk. some thought he was on drugs. early last september,
said there might be a
concern. then came a youtube posting that started, this is
, my genocide school where i'm going homeless because of this school. and i haven't forgotten the teacher who give me a "b." that triggered a police visit to the loughner home and immediate suspension.
and at that meeting, both the mother and father were present. what they understood and didn't understand, you know, i really can't answer.
chief stella bay says without a specific threat aimed at anyone by loughner, the college did what it was allowed to do.
absolutely. we followed all of our processes and policies, absolutely.
also today, the cleanup at the
has been completed. businesses reopened, and at least some sense of normalcy here has returned. there have also been some visitors to the loughner home who have tried unsuccessfully to talk to the suspect's parents. a couple of clergymen and even eric fuller, one of the shooting victims.
i thould i would come over here and try to forgive them. i know that sounds crazy.
loughner's aunt, mary mitchell, thinks that the accused parents also deserve forgiveness or at least compassion. she said they have to live with this the rest of their lives. brian?
part of our team in
tonight. mike, thanks for that.
