Tragedy in Tucson – In Pictures!

Dear Commons Community,

I have already made several posts on this blog on the shootings in Tucson on January 8, 2011, in which six people were killed and Congresswoman Gabriele Giffords was seriously wounded by a lone, crazed gunman.  Here are some photographs of this tragedy taken from various sources.
