Congresswoman shot dead, eight others wounded
(UPDATE, 5:12 p.m.: Rep. Giffords has been operated on and is expected to recover. I’d like to know how the false story that she was dead got started. Did someone say to a reporter, “I think she’s dead,” and the reporter went with that?)
(UPDATE, 3:13 p.m.: Karl D. writes: “The facts are coming fast and furious with this story. FOX news just reported that she is NOT dead but in critical condition and in surgery as I write this.”)
Fox News reports:
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona, was fatally shot in the head at close range by a gunman Saturday morning outside a grocery store in Tucson while holding a public event, Fox News has confirmed.
