PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities investigating the shooting rampage that killed six people and wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 11 others compiled nearly 3,000 pages of documents that provide a fresh glimpse into the 2011 attack.

The documents released Wednesday detail the erratic behavior of the gunman, a tense interrogation and the chaos that enveloped the bloody scene.

Jared Lee Loughner was polite and cooperative but complained of feeling sore as authorities began their hours-long initial interview of the gunman.

At one point Loughner said, "I'm about ready to fall over."

Also in the documents, Giffords intern Daniel Hernandez described how Giffords squeezed his hand as he held her after the shooting.

The documents on the shooting outside a Safeway where Giffords was hosting a meet-and-greet with constituents have been kept private since the January 2011 attack.
