More than two dozen reporters lined up outside a federal courtroom in downtown Phoenix Monday before a hearing for the man charged in Saturday's shooting rampage in Tucson.

More than two dozen reporters lined up outside a federal courtroom in downtown Phoenix Monday before a hearing for the man charged in Saturday's shooting rampage in Tucson.

Cameramen and photographers were stationed on corners, but there were no protesters.

Jared Loughner (LAWF'-nuhr) is accused of killing six people and wounding 14 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

No official explanation has been given for why the court hearing was moved, and court records didn't offer an explanation.

Loughner also is accused of killing U.S. District Judge John Roll.

Assistant public defender Heather Williams says the hearing was likely moved to avoid a possible conflict of interest, because every federal judge in Tucson worked closely with Roll.
