TUCSON, Ariz.—Authorities in Tucson say the suspect in Saturday's shooting had three more pistol magazines with him when he was tackled.

The Pima County sheriff's office on Friday says an extended clip was found nearby and Jared Loughner had two more 15-round magazines in his pockets, though it doesn't say if any of those were loaded.

Authorities say he used a Glock semiautomatic handgun with an extended clip that held 33 bullets in the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

The sheriff's office says a deputy found the gun on the ground.

Loughner was arrested after the attack that wounded 19 people, six fatally.

Also in his pockets were a 4-inch buck knife, a plastic bag with money, a Visa card and his Arizona driver's license. top stories on Twitter
