This is so sad.
U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot outside a grocery store in Tucson Saturday morning during a public event.
According to a spokeswoman for University Medical Center in Tucson, she is currently undergoing surgery for a gunshot wound to the head.
Reports say that at least 17 other people were injured, including a child around the age of 10. Six people are reportedly dead.
An Arizona federal judge was also among the 11 people that were shot.
The suspect is said to be in custody.
So crazy. And just so tragic.
