Gabrielle Giffords Arizona Shooting: Nine Year Old Girl Among Victims

A nine-year-old girl and a federal judge are among the victims of the Arizona shooting which has left Arizona Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords in critical condition.

“We are still assembling all the facts, but we know that Representative Giffords was one of the victims. She is currently at a hospital in the area and she is battling for her life.

We also know that at least five people lost their lives in this tragedy. Among them were a federal judge, John Roll, who has served America’s legal system for almost 40 years and a young girl,” President Obama said.

At the White House late this afternoon, President Obama  said he has offered Gov. Jan Brewer the full support of the federal government. He said he directed FBI Director Muller to go to Arizona to coordinate the efforts.

Our deepest sympathies to the victims’ families.
