A lawsuit that was originally believed to have been filed by the gunman who shot former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords in a mass shooting in Arizona in 2011 could be a hoax.
A federal court official told KPNX late Wednesday the $25 million suit reportedly filed by Jared Lee Loughner was actually written by "another mentally disturbed prisoner in Philadelphia who is impersonating Loughner."
The federal court filing blames Giffords for emotional and psychological distress, claiming he is innocent and was "hand-picked" to be an assassin.
