U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot point-blank in the head on Saturday at a northwest-side grocery store and remains hospitalized. Killed in the rampage were: Federal Judge John Roll; Gabe Zimmerman, Giffords' director of community outreach; Dorwan Stodder, a church volunteer; and a 9-year-old, Christina-Taylor Green.

The pistol used in the shooting rampage in which six people were killed and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was wounded malfunctioned, investigators said at a news conference today. Sheriff Clarence Dupnik also said three people prevented the attack from being worse.

Arizona Daily Star reporters will tweet from the courthouse before and during Jared Loughner's sentencing. The coverage begins at 7 a.m. today.
