EDIT CONTAINS 4:3 MATERIAL The man suspected of killing six people in a shooting rampage in Arizona last January... has been declared mentally unfit to stand trial. A federal judge said Wednesday 22-year-old Jared Loughner was incapable of understanding the proceedings against him and in assisting in his own defense. Loughner is accused of opening fire with a semi-automatic pistol on a group of people at an outdoor political rally. Six people were killed. U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was among the 13 wounded and is still recovering from a serious gunshot wound to the head. Loughner will remain in a prison hospital until September when he is re-evaluated. Julie Noce, Reuters
