Giffords, who was re-elected to her third term in November, was hosting her first "Congress on Your Corner†event at the Safeway in northwest Tucson when a gunman ran up and started shooting. At least five other people, including members of her staff, were hurt, according to Peter Michaels, news director of Arizona Public Media.
Other media reports she was shot in the head point blank :shock:

Ohh no, the shooting is starting... :shock: Not to mention the bombs that went off that were addressed to the DHS secretary. Goodness.

Is it starting? :hide:

Prayers for her and the staffers who were shot, and for their family and friends.

Sounds like she was a Blue Dog Democrat as well. She was very critical of Obama and White House, and a lot of their policies. She wasn't your average liberal left-wing Pelosi Democrat. She also told Obama that the AZ law was a Wake Up Call that the Federal Government wasn't doing their job at securing the border.

So she was very much a Blue Dog Democrat and not a liberal lefty, at least what I am hearing. I honestly don't know much about her.

Confirmed, Fox News, She was shot Point Blank in the head. One person is in custody. There are reports that the crowd apprehended and stopped the gunman. Too bad one of them wasn't armed so they could have protected her!

NPR reports she was shot in the head and killed. The gunman was tackled by a bystander as he ran away.

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords died after being shot in the head at a public event on Saturday, Pima County, Ariz., sheriff's office confirms. The 40-year-old Democrat was outside a Tucson grocery store when a gunman ran up and began firing indiscriminately. The suspect was taken into police custody.

The suspect ran off and was tackled by a bystander. He was taken into custody. Witnesses described him as in his late teens or early 20s.

Congressman King says that he's shocked that this can happen to a congresswoman...

Good people die every day, congressman. :roll:

Now we wait for the knee-jerk reactions and all the "there oughta be a law!"

Prayers to all involved.

6 dead? More than one shooter? Collateral damage (on the shooter's part or those returning fire)?
