From the Description: "On Saturday, January 8, 2011, at 10:10 a.m. Mountain Standard Time, a gunman opened fire on U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and a group of citizens attending her 'Congress on Your Corner' event in front of a Safeway supermarket in Tucson, AZ. The gunman fired 31 rounds, killing 6 people and wounding Representative Giffords and 12 others. U.S. District Judge John Roll and Gabriel Zimmerman, a staff member for Representative Giffords, were among those killed. Citizens acted immediately to detain the gunman while congressional staff and two doctors, who were shopping at the Safeway, provided first aid to the victims. Pima County 911 operators received the first call from the incident scene at 10:11 a.m. A PCSD deputy arrived on site at 10:15 a.m. and detained the suspect. A second deputy arrived soon after and secured the shooter's weapon."
