Sheriff says suspect hasn't said a word

PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona sheriff says a 22-year-old man accused of killing six people and trying to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson is not cooperating with investigators.

Pima (PEE'-muh) County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik told ABC's "Good Morning America" Monday that Jared Loughner (LAWF'-nuhr) had said "not a word."

He's scheduled to make his first court appearance Monday afternoon.

Dupnik said investigators were all but certain Loughner acted alone, saying "he's a typical troubled individual who's a loner."

The sheriff said his earlier comments blaming political discourse for the shooting were the result of his anger about the shooting - not any agenda.

    God please guide the people of the State of Arizona so this man does not return to the streets of the United States and find ways to prevent this happen here in Kentucky and other states. God Bless all the people and families that was involved in the stupid act.
