Earlier today, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ8) was shot outside a grocery store in Tuscon. 8-19 other people were also injured, depending on which news report you read.
One such report
In some reports, the shooter has been described as a 20-30 year old white male. Something may have been said during the shooting, but reports conflict. The motive, at this point, remains unclear. Everyone seems to have their own theories, from Tea Partiers to Los Zetas. More information will be forthcoming.
Just think this should be posted. I don't know the last time a us congressman was assassinated. Pretty monumental.
