Well-wishers gather outside University Medical Center in Tucson, Ariz. yesterday to show their support for U.S. Rep. Gabri-
elle Giffords, D-Ariz., and others who were shot on Saturday during Giffords's speech at a local supermarket.
Gunman charged for attempted
assasination of congresswoman
County sheriff says
acted alone in
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Fed-
eral prosecutors brought charges
yesterday against the gunman
accused of attempting to assassi-
nate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and
killing six people at a political
event in Arizona.
Investigators said they carried
out a search warrant at Jared
Loughner's home and seized an
envelope from a safe with mes-
sages such as "I planned ahead,"
"My assassination" and the
name "Giffords" next to what
appears to be the man's signa-
ture. He allegedly purchased the
Glock pistol used in the attack in
November at Sportsman's Ware-
house in Tucson.
Court documents also show
that Loughner had contact with
Giffords in the past. Other evi-
dence included a letter addressed
to him from Giffords' congres-
sional stationery in which she
thanked him for attending a
"Congress on your Corner" event
at a mall in Tucson in 2007.
Heather Williams, the first
assistant federal public defender
in Arizona, says the 22-year-old
suspect doesn't yet have a law-
yer, but that her office is working
to get one appointed. Williams'
office is asking for an outside
attorney because one of those
killed was U.S. District Judge
John M. Roll.
Pima County Sheriff Clarence-
Dupnik said Sunday that Lough-
ner acted alone.

Loughner is accused of kill-
ing six people, including an aide
to Giffords and a 9-year-old girl
who was born on Sept. 11, 2001.
Fourteen others were wounded.
Authorities don't know Loughner's
motive, but said he targeted Gif-
fords at a public gathering around
10 a.m. Saturday.
Doctors treating the lawmaker
provided an optimistic update
about her chances for survival,
saying they are "very, very encour-
aged" by her ability to respond to
simple commands along with their
success in controlling her bleed-
Mourners crammed into the
tiny sanctuary of Giffords' syna-
gogue in Tucson to pray that she
quickly recovered. Outside the
hospital, candles flickered at a
makeshift memorial. Signs read
"Peace + love are stronger," "God
bless America and "We love you,
Gabrielle." People also laid down
bouquets of flowers, American
flags and pictures of Giffords.
One of the victims was Christi-
na Taylor Green, who was a mem-
ber of the student council at her
local school and went to the event
because of her interest in govern-
ment. She is the granddaughter of
former Philadelphia Phillies man-
ager Dallas Green.
She was born on 9/11 and fea-

Hope" that chronicled one baby

The fact that Christina's life
ended in tragedy was especially
tragic to those who knew her.
"Tragedy seems to have happened
again," said the author of the book,
Christine Naman. "In the form of
this awful event."
Authorities said the dead
included Roll; Green; Giffords
aide Gabe Zimmerman, 30; Doro-
thy Morris, 76; Dorwin Stoddard,
76; and Phyllis Schneck, 79. Judge
