TUCSON, Arizona (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – President and Mrs. Obama are expected to arrive in Tucson, Arizona any time now to attend a memorial service to honor the victims of Saturday’s shooting.

And attendance for the event being held at the University of Arizona is expected to reach into the thousands.

Meanwhile, investigators are continuing to piecing together the timeline of Jared Loughner 's frantic morning before the attack that killed six on Saturday.

Police say, in the hours before the assassination attempt against Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Loughner made two shopping trips to Wal-Mart, was pulled over for running a red light but was let off with a warning, and ran from his father after an angry confrontation.
