Here we go. Gabrielle Giffords, an Arizona Democratic congresswoman was just shot (in the head, according to an MSNBC) at an event. Her situation is “very grave” and she’s in surgery now. Nine other people were shot.
Perhaps coincidentally, she was on the SARAHPAC hit list. With a rifle sight.
UPDATE: Eyewitness report.
UPDATE: The page on Palin’s site is down.
UPDATE: Local sheriff is saying six dead.
UPDATE: Jane Hamsher with news of inflammatory campaign event held by her opponent.
UPDATE: A federal judge who attended the event and at least one aide is dead, according to MSNBC.
FINAL UPDATE: Giffords is expected to recover. Six people are dead, including a nine-year-old child. The shooter has been identified as Jared Loughner, 22. The guy’s apparently a mentally ill person who’s internalized the wingnut gospel.
