Arizona Congresswoman and Others Shot Outside Grocery Store
Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Arizona) was among 12 people shot this morning outside a Tuscon, Arizona grocery store.
Rep. Giffords was originally reported to have died, but is expected by her doctors to "pull through."
Of the 12 people shot in this tragic incident, 6 have died including a Federal Judge, John Roll, and a 9-year-old girl.
The alleged shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, a 21-year old man, was subdued at the scene after shooting Representative Giffords at point blank range and firing between 15 and 20 shots into the crowd.
This writer's thoughts and prayers are with the families of all those affected by this tragic event.
