Gabrielle Giffords Was Shot At A Public Event Jan. 8.

Representative Gabrielle Giffords, the congresswoman who was shot earlier today at a public event in Tucson Arizona, is married to astronaut Mark Kelly.

Kelly, 56, has flown three shuttle missions and was scheduled to be the commander of the shuttle program’s final planned mission later this year. His twin brother and fellow astronaut Scott Kelly is currently stationed on the International Space Station.

There are varying accounts on Giffords’ condition, but a hospital spokesman says the Democrat is in critical condition. An aide to the Democrat was killed. An unknown number of others were injured, officials said, including additional aides to the lawmaker.
