At least three people — some are reporting five — are in critical condition after being shot in the lobby of an office building on Glendale Avenue in Phoenix, AZ.
Police are currently searching for the gunman — a white male — who remains at large, and those injured have been transported to a nearby hospital.
Sgt. Tommy Thompson of the Phoenix Police Department states:
"At this point we don’t believe he is in the area. This doesn’t appear to be a random type of incident."
The shooting took place moments after former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords gave an inspiring introductory speech at a congressional hearing for gun control (above).
Gabby was one of the unfortunate victims of a shooting spree that occured in 2011 in Tucson, and has first hand experience when it comes to the horror that guns can inflict.
So, so sad.
Our thoughts are with those who are currently suffering due to this terrible incident in Phoenix.
