PHOENIX (AP) -- A federal judge has ruled that the suspect in the Arizona shooting rampage that wounded U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is mentally incompetent to stand trial, putting the criminal case on hold indefinitely.

Jared Lee Loughner, 21, was removed from the court hearing after an outburst, and watched most of the proceeding on a TV screen in another room.

Mike Watkiss was in the courtroom and described Jared Lee Loughner's behavior to Scott Pasmore and Kaley O'Kelley.
