PHOENIX (AP) — Detailed police reports show Jared Lee Loughner (LAWF'-nur) was polite and cooperative, but complained of feeling sore, as authorities interviewed him following a shooting rampage outside a Tucson grocery store.

The shooting killed six people and severely wounded former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 11 others.

The conversation took place as Loughner sat in restraints in an interview room for several hours.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department released the detailed police reports Wednesday.

The roughly 2,700 pages released that detail the investigation marked the public's first glimpse into documents that authorities have kept private since the January 2011 attack.

Loughner's guilty plea enabled him to avoid the death sentence. He is serving his sentence at a federal prison medical facility in Springfield, Mo.
