A Look At The Victims In The Arizona Attack

MSN - U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was believed to be the main target when a gunmen went on a shooting spree that left six dead and at least 13 injured Saturday. Here is a look at some of the victims as they become identified.

Giffords, 40, was first elected to the Arizona House in 2000 and the state Senate in 2002.

The Tucson native was elected to the U.S. House in 2006.

She married Cmdr. Mark E. Kelly, a NASA astronaut and Navy pilot from New Jersey, in 2007.

U.S. District Judge John M. Roll
Named Arizona's chief federal judge in 2006, Roll won wide acclaim for a career as a respected jurist and as a leader who had pushed to beef up the court's strained bench to handle a growing number of border crime-related cases.

"I have never met a more sincere ... fair-minded, brilliant federal judge or any judge for that matter in my whole life," Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said.

Roll, 63, was heading home after a trip to church and the store before stopping to visit briefly with Giffords at an event she was holding for constituents at a northwest-side Tucson Safeway.

Roll was a Pennsylvania native who got his law degree from the University of Virginia. He is survived by his wife, Maureen, three sons, and five grandchildren.

Roll was appointed to the federal bench in 1991 by President George H.W. Bush. Roll previously served as a state trial judge and as a judge on the midlevel Arizona Court of appeals. He previously worked as a county and state prosecutor.

"Judge Roll was a widely respected jurist, a strong and able leader of his court, and a kind, courteous and sincere gentleman," said Chief Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the federal circuit that includes Arizona. "He worked tirelessly to improve the delivery of justice to the people of Arizona."

Christina-Taylor Green
The 9-year-old who was shot at the event and later died at a hospital went to the Giffords event with a neighbor because she had just been elected to the student council and was interested in government, her uncle told KTAR in Phoenix.
