TUCSON, Ariz. -- A federal judge asked to unseal remaining search warrants in the 2011 Tucson shooting rampage that wounded former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has given prosecutors and defense attorneys until May 8 to respond.

Attorneys for The Washington Post, Phoenix TV station KPNX and Phoenix Newspapers Inc., which publishes the Arizona Republic, want U.S. District Judge Larry Burns to release at least four remaining sealed and unredacted documents in the case.

About 2,700 pages of investigative papers were released by the Pima County Sheriff's Department on March 27.

Federal prosecutors asked Burns for more time to review the remaining documents. Burns did Thursday.

Six people were killed and 13 others wounded including Giffords in the shooting outside a Tucson supermarket on Jan. 8, 2011. Giffords was holding a meet-and-greet with constituents.
