Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Shot By Gunman

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head by a gunman at a public event in Tucson on Saturday. There are conflicting reports about whether she was killed.

The Pima County, Ariz., sheriff's office told member station KJZZ the 40-year-old Democrat was killed. At least nine other people, including members of her staff, were injured.

Giffords, who was re-elected to a third term in November, was hosting a "Congress on Your Corner" event at a Safeway in northwest Tucson when a gunman ran up and started shooting, according to Peter Michaels, news director of Arizona Public Media.

The suspect fired indiscriminately from about four feet away, Michaels said. A congressional official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity that the gunman was using an automatic weapon.

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.

Giffords was transported to University Medical Center in Tucson.

Giffords was first elected to represent Arizona's 8th District in 2006. The "Congress on Your Corner" events, which she holds regularly, allow constituents to present their concerns directly to her.

Giffords' Tucson office was one of three damaged last March by vandals who targeted Democrats in advance of the U.S. House vote on the controversial health care legislation. A glass panel at her office was shattered, and at the time her staff said that it appeared the window had been damaged by a pellet gun.

On Palin's hit list. Which apparently she just took down.

They sound like they were close friends. :rofl3:

Sorry Cerise, from his YouTube videos and his targets he clearly wasn't liberal.
I am glad you found something you could disagree with. Clearly he was a lib from all accounts. Including the opinions of his friends.

Nope, looks mostly like a libertarian from all accounts. The person you claim was a "friends" (weird how you used the plural) hadn't seen him in 3 years.

His YouTube videos say in his own words that he's anti-government and focused a gold backed currency. You're going to need to do some serious brainwashing to convince anyone he's a liberal shooting at democrats. :laugh:
well, a few things can be 'safely' assumed I believe....

He wasn't Christian.
He wasn't Muslim.
This was a white on white crime.
He IS alive and in custody.
He has a troubled past and is at least partially delusional.

with that said...
They are looking for another possible accomplice.
A liberal shooting at a blue dog. And by that twitter ' least 2 people claimed to know him. And from that Kos 'grab apparently he said 'she was dead to him already.' Oh, sorry. This Kos 'grab:
