Listen to the story:


Authorities released nearly 600 photos that investigators took in the aftermath of the Tucson shooting rampage that killed six people and wounded former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 12 others.

The photos showed the handgun, high-capacity pistol magazines and knife that Jared Lee Loughner carried with him as he carried out the Jan. 8, 2011 attack.

The images also include Loughner's receipt for the motel where he stayed the night before the shooting, a credit card record showing ear plugs he bought and dozens of vehicles that were in the parking lot of the shopping center where the shooting unfolded.

The release of photos didn't include any gruesome crime scene images of victims that are being shielded from the public out of respect to those who were injured and killed in the attack.
