Giffords opposed SB 1070, the state's new controversial immigration law, calling it "divisive," and supported instead a comprehensive immigration reform at the national level.

The motive for the shooting currently remains unclear.

Police were questioning Jared Loughner, a 22-year-old Tucson man whose online writings and videos were filled with anti-government messages and rambling rants about mind-control and brainwashing, according to the Arizona Republic.

Police said that the suspect had refused to cooperate, invoking his right to remain silent.

Loughner is believed to have come to the constituent meeting with another individual identified only as a white male in his 50s.
