Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot, possibly killed
Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (Dem) was shot by a lone gunman at a public appearance in Tuscon. Several others, numbers have varied, have been injured. There are conflicting reports on Giffords’ status.
It’s too early to speculate on the gunman’s motive or the circumstances, and we won’t engage in that here. I would strongly caution anyone else from speculating, too.
In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers are with her family, including astronaut Mark Kelly, and with the families of the other victims.
