As the Senate Judiciary Committee holds a hearing on gun safety in the aftermath of the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, local authorities are reporting three shots fired at an office complex in Phoenix, Arizona. There could be as many as four victims. At least one woman has been loaded into an ambulance.
A local ABC affiliate reports that 3 have been shot, 5 injured. The suspect is still on the loose. One of the victims is in “extremely critical” condition.
In the middle of his testimony, Mark Kelly — husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ), who was shot in a parking lot in Tucson, AZ, two years ago — informed the Judiciary Committee hearing room of today’s shooting. “While we were having this hearing, and we certainly don’t know the details,” Kelly said, “but in Phoenix, Arizona, there is another, what seems to be possibly a shooting with multiple victims. It does not seem like anybody has been killed but the initial reports are three people injured in Phoenix, Arizona, with multiple shots fired.” Watch it:
