Six people were killed Saturday when a gunman attacked Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Those killed:

Christina Green, 9,who was born in Maryland on 9/11. She was featured in a book called "Faces of Hope: Babies Born on 9/11". A neighbor took her to the event, thinking the girl would enjoy it. We're told the neighbor was also shot.

Gabe Zimmerman, 30, was recently engaged to be married,  was Giffords' director of community outreach. He graduated from University High School in 1998 where he was active in student government. A vigil was held tonight by his friends who described him as  "caring," "motivated," "a free spirit," and "a man who understood how to live life."

U.S. District Judge John Roll, 63, earned his law degree from UA in 1972. Roll was nominated to the federal bench in 1991, and has been the chief judge of the district of Arizona since 2006.

Dorwan Stoddard, 76, was a church volunteer. When the shooting started, Dorwan tried to protect his wife, Mavavell, by laying on top of her when the shooting started. She was wounded in the attack.

    Dorothy Morris, 76, moved to Oro Valley from Las Vegas after her husband George Morris retired as a pilot with United Airlines, according to Bill Royle, a good friend of the Morris family.George Morris remains in intensive care at the University Medical Center. The couple have two daughters, Kim Hardy and Tori Nelson, who live in Las Vegas. For more on the Morrises, read this story on RGJ.com.


    Phyllis Schneck, 79, originally from New Jersey, was a homemaker for much of her life, reports the Los Angeles Times. From the story: "She centered her world on her three children, seven grandchildren, her 2-year-old great-grandchild, and her husband, Ernie Schneck Sr., who was the brother of her childhood best friend. She did administrative work for a time at Fairleigh Dickinson University, but was mainly devoted to community work and raising her children, her daughter said."
