Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords Shot , Photo, Updates

Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head this afternoon at an Arizona Grocery store.

The Congresswoman and at least 11 others were killed or wounded at the shooting that took place outside a Safeway supermarket, where Giffords was holding a well-publicized meeting with her constituents.

Officials said a 9-year-old child was among the killed, and a U.S. Marshal said a federal judge was also fatally shot in the attack.

Others wounded included some of Gifford's aides who were with her at the time.

The Congresswoman, a Democrat, is married to astronaut Mark E. Kelly.

Police say the shooter was in custody, and was identified by people familiar with the investigation as Jared Lee Loughner, 22. U.S. officials who provided his name to the AP spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release it publicly.

Giffords was first elected to Congress amid a wave of Democratic victories in the 2006 election, and has been mentioned as a possible Senate candidate in 2012 and a gubernatorial prospect in 2014.
