Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, a graduate of Scripps College in Claremont, was shot in the head Saturday by a gunman who opened fire outside a Tucson grocery store during a meeting with voters, killing a federal judge, a 9-year-old girl and four others.
Giffords, a moderate Democrat who just began her third term, was among at least 10 people wounded. She was expected to survive.
