TUCSON, Ariz. -- Pima County authorities said the suspect in Saturday's mass shooting in Tucson had a knife, cash and two 15-round gun magazines in his pockets when he was taken into custody Saturday.

Bystanders tackled and restrained Jared Loughner after the shooting that killed six people and injured 13 outside the Safeway store where Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was hosting a "Congress on Your Corner" event. As two men tackled Loughner, Patricia Maisch reportedly grabbed a full magazine as he was loading it into the gun.

According to the Pima County Sheriff's Department, the first deputy on the scene, Thomas Audetat, took custody of Loughner and placed him in handcuffs.

Sheriff's spokesman Jason Ogan said deputies searched Loughner's pockets and found two 15-round magazines, a 4-inch buck knife, a plastic bag containing money, a Visa card and his Arizona driver's license.

Deputy Georgina Patino found Loughner's weapon on the ground. Investigators have determined that the weapon, a 9mm Glock 19 with a 31-round magazine, was legally purchased by Loughner on Nov. 30.

Loughner was arrested and is being held without bail.

A man walking his dog Thursday morning found a black bag holding ammunition that authorities believe was discarded by Loughner.

Authorities have said Loughner and his father got into a confrontation over the bag at their home in the hours before the shooting.

Judge John McCarthy Roll, Gabe Zimmerman, Phyllis Schneck, Dorwin Stoddard, Dorothy Morris and 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green were killed in the shooting.

On Friday, the sheriff's department released a complete list of the 13 people injured by the gunfire:

Susan Hileman, 58
