TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - The man sought by the FBI and Pima County Sheriffs deputies as a "person of interest" turned out to be the suspect's cab driver, The Arizona Daily Star is reporting.

The man told detectives he gave Jared Loughner a ride to the shopping center where the shooting took place on Oracle and Ina roads.

The cab driver walked with Loughner into the Safeway store so the suspect could get cash to pay the fare, according to the Arizona Daily Star report.

Records substantiate the driver dropped Loughner off at 9:59 a.m., Kastigar said. Loughner was picked up nearby. The first report of a shooting came in 10:11 a.m. and paramedics were on scene at 10:16 a.m., Kastigar said.
