TUCSON, Ariz. -- Federal prosecutors say some of the unredacted documents that followed the 2011 Tucson shooting rampage that wounded former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords should remain sealed.

Monday was the deadline set by U.S. District Judge Larry Burns for prosecutors and defense lawyers for Jared Loughner to respond to a request to release remaining documents in the case.

Attorneys for several news organizations asked Burns to unseal the documents or ``disclose any redacted information that no longer satisfies the First Amendment standard for secrecy.''

About 2,700 pages of investigative papers were released in late March.

Loughner was sentenced in November to seven consecutive life sentences, plus 140 years.

He pleaded guilty to 19 federal charges in the Tucson shooting that left six people dead and 13 others wounded, including Giffords.
