PHOENIX (AP) - Newly released law enforcement documents show how the man convicted in the shooting of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was unraveling in the month before the rampage.

The Arizona Daily Star obtained the FBI files from the investigation into Jared Loughner, who was sentenced to life in prison for the shooting. The documents include paranoid, expletive-filled rants on MySpace in which Loughner discusses killing and his anger toward the government.

Loughner killed six people and injured 13, including Giffords, on Jan. 8, 2011, as the then-Arizona congresswoman met with constituents outside a grocery store.
