Police: Found bag may be Loughner's; crime scene processing complete

Police believe they may have found a black bag that caused an argument between Arizona shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner and his father hours before Loughner allegedly shot 19 people, killing six and wounding 13, authorities said Thursday.

A teenager out walking his dog found the bag in a "wash," or dried river bed, on Thursday morning, and turned it over to a neighbor, who called police, Pima County Sheriff's Department Capt. Chris Nanos said. The bag was found near where Loughner's family lives, he said.

On Wednesday, Richard Kastigar, bureau chief for the sheriff's department, said investigators were looking for a black bag Loughner was carrying early Saturday when he had a brief discussion with his father, Randy Loughner, in the Loughners' front yard.
