The suspect in a deadly Arizona shooting is in a federal courtroom facing charges of attempting to assasinate a congresswoman.

Jared Loughner entered the courtroom handcuffed and wearing an inmate uniform. His head is shaved and he has a cut on his right temple.


As he walked in, he looked straight at the crowd. His lawyer, a woman, whispered to him.

The 22-year-old is accused of killing six people on Saturday -- including a federal judge -- and injuring 14 others, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
