Web site for the Arizona Daily Star is selling photos of the man believed to be responsible for shooting several people, including Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords and a federal judge, for $125 each.

The newspaper isn't trying to cash in on this morning's tragedy -- many newspapers sell photos taken in the community as a way to bring in some extra revenue. A photo taken by the paper at a Tucson book fair coincidentally shows the suspect, 22-year-old Jared Loughner -- and an 8x10 framed copy of the photo could be yours.

Here's a link, but you can see the photo below.

The man in the photo has been identified as Loughner. And, as you can see below, azstarnet.com is offering an 8x10 framed copy of the photo for $125.
