Arizona Represenative Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head
Her condition is unknown at this time. She is in surgery at this time and our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims of this sad event. It is being said that this event might be politically motivated, but not confirmed at this time. "I am horrified by the senseless attack on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and members of her staff," newly elected House Speaker John Boehner said. "An attack on one who serves is an attack on all who serve. Acts and threats of violence against public officials have no place in our society. Our prayers are with Congresswoman Giffords, her staff, all who were injured, and their families. This is a sad day for our country."
