Giffords Shot At Tucson Event

January 8, 2011

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) was shot Saturday morning while hosting an event in her Tucson district, according to a senior House Democratic aide.

Giffords was holding a "Congress on your Corner" event in Tucson when she was shot at point blank range, news reports from Tucson said. At least three people were injured when the shooting took place just after 10 a.m., KOLD TV reported.

Giffords was shot in the head, according to the Tucson Citizen newspaper. A spokesperson for Giffords' office was not immediately reachable.

Giffords advertised the "Congress on your Corner" event on her official website, to be held from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at a Safeway in Tucson. Congressional staff were attending the event to help constituents with casework.

"'Congress on Your Corner' allows residents of Arizona's 8th Congressional District to meet their congresswoman one-on-one and discuss with her any issue, concern or problem involving the federal government," says the press release still on Giffords' website.
