TUCSON, Ariz. — The week before authorities say Jared Loughner opened fire on a crowd at a political town hall near here, police at Pima Community College were on alert for him, concerned he would return to the campus.

In a series of e-mails Dec. 28, college police said they planned to distribute Loughner's picture to staff members, instruct night officers to be on watch for the former student and order additional checks of campus. Loughner had been forced out of the college three months earlier after exhibiting bizarre behavior in class and posting a self-narrated YouTube video shot on campus.
