Default U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in ICU after being shot at a store in Tucson, Arizona,

Congresswoman, 6 Others, Killed By Gunman
http://www.npr.org/2011/01/08/132764...hot-in-arizona
by NPR Staff
January 8, 2011

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and six others died after a gunman opened fire at a public event on Saturday, member station KJZZ in Phoenix has confirmed.

The Pima County, Ariz., sheriff's office told news director Mark Moran the 40-year-old Democrat was killed.

Giffords, who was re-elected to her 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.

Giffords was talking to a couple when the suspect ran up and fired indiscriminately from about four feet away, Michaels said.

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

Giffords was married to astronaut Mark Kelly, a veteran of Desert Storm. They have two children.

"Last March, Giffords was one of 10 House Democrats who were the subject of harassment over their support for the national health care overhaul. At the time, the front door of Giffords' Tucson office had been shattered in an early morning incident."

Per local TV station news conference at the hospital,

Congresswoman Giffords is out of surgery and the surgeon is optimistic that she will live. Her chances of a full recovery are not yet known. Congresswoman Giffords was shot once in the head at close range.

No news yet as to motive.

Just as likely it was over the health care reform since she had been threatened and her office was vandalized during the debate.

Then again it could be a foreign terrorist.

The congresswoman's father appears to have his suspicions

The congresswoman’s father Spencer Gifford, 75, was rushing to the hospital when asked if his 40-year-old daughter had any enemies.

"Yeah," he told The Post. "The whole tea party."

We will obviously find out soon enough - my bet is the FBI already has secured the perp's computer with a search warrant - anybody in that guy's Outlook address book or on his cell phone's contact list will be visited by law enforcement in the near future
