Jared Lee Loughner's Mug Shot (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Jared Lee Loughner's mug shot has just been released by authorities.

Loughner, the alleged shooter of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others, shows off an eerie grin and hint of a black eye in the photo. He was quickly identified as a suspect Saturday, taken into custody and has since been charged.

Loughner has been called a "fringe character" and his YouTube and MySpace presence has been closely examined. His behavior at a community college prior to the shooting has sparked questions about whether colleges should be providing more resources for mental health.
