A shooting rampage in Arizona Saturday killed U.S. District Judge John M. Roll, and while his death initially was overshadowed by news of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ injuries, Roll’s murderer is sure to face the harshest justice provided by law.
Roll was killed while just passing through an outdoor town-hall style event called “Congress on your Corner” held by Giffords in a Safeway parking lot in Tucson.
“My understanding is he just went to the Safeway to do some shopping … and he just stopped to chat and say hi, ” C.J. Karamargin, Giffords communications director, told Fox News.
Police say suspect Jared Lee Loughner, who is in custody, killed six people, including Roll, a 9-year-old child and Giffords’ aide Gabe Zimmerman, and wounded 13 others, including Giffords who was shot in the head as she met with her constituents at the start of the meeting.
