PHOENIX (AP) - Hundreds of pages of police reports in the investigation of the Tucson shooting rampage that wounded former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords are being made public.

The release Wednesday will mark the first public glimpse into documents that authorities have kept private since the attack more than two years ago.

The Pima County sheriff's department will release an estimated 2,700 pages of records from the January 2011 shooting at a meet-and-greet event outside a grocery store that killed six people and wounded Giffords and 11 others.

The documents include transcribed interviews with witnesses, police reports and other records.

The judge in the case had prevented authorities from releasing the records, but cleared the way after the conclusion of the criminal case against the man who carried out the attack.
