He was walking up to everyone that he shot, and shot each in the head.

Apparently another person shot at the shooter.

Federal Judge John Roll was shot and killed at this event...

BTW, this event was held in the parking lot of a Safe Way Grocery Store.....


The Judge that I stated who was shot and killed above, was appointed in 1991 by President Bush.

Judge John McArthur Roll


ICE agents, FBI and Homeland Security are now involved in the investigation.

Gunman was a coward. Walked up to her and shot her in the back of the head. Chicken*****.

If it is a Tea Bagger, this incident will make them look really bad.....really, really bad.

House Speaker John Boehner has already condemned the shooting, so if it turns out to be a member of the Tea Party, established Republicans like him, Richard Lugar and John McCain will want to distance, if they haven't done so already.

They believe him to be an Afghanistan Veteran...



Oddly enough she was also a senator that was very upset that the Federal Government had not put more troops on their border with Mexico.....she was a strong proponent of border security.

Yahoo.com says his name is Jared Laughner.

The Tea Party better hope he's not one of them.

He is in critical condition, he has not died.

Another news conference will be at 6:00 p.m. eastern time. This news conference was only about 2 questions and we know everything that has been announced so far....the news conference gave no more information than what we know...

The judge confirmation is kind of a so...so....account.

But speaking with Senator Lopez from Arizona, her best friend....she is being updated by the doctors involved.

At the very least this will change the way Congressional meetings with constituents are held in the future. Apparently this event was being held outside the grocery store and there was a big sign with her name and title on it. Just not a very safe way of doing things when you think about it. Events like this should be held inside with security to screen people for weapons.

Doctor states

10 patients sent to his hospital, 1 died. 5 are critical....5 in the operating room.
The senator is out of her operation with the neurosurgeon, the doctor says he is hopeful (very optimistic are his words) in her recovery. Good news....

Apparently she was shot through and through on one side of her head....



Depending on which side of her head she was shot on, will tell how she recovers.


And dear god, a 9 year old girl was shot and killed.....just sad.

I'm finding it hard to stick to my stance on the Death Penalty.

Hospital spokesman says surgery is completed and they are very optimistic for a recovery, but they aren't sure if it will be a full recovery. Could be brain damage. Bullet apparently went through her head/brain.

Wow, 9 year old girl killed.
