Tucson Shooting To Be Condemned By House

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON — The House plans to vote Wednesday to condemn "in the strongest possible terms" the shootings in Arizona that killed six people and gravely wounded a congresswoman.

The proposed resolution extends condolences to the victims and their families, praises the emergency responders and expresses hopes that the injured will recover. The House originally had planned to vote Wednesday on the divisive question of repealing last year's overhaul of the nation's health care system.

Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords remains hospitalized after a gunman shot her in the head at an outdoor event in Tucson. An aide to Giffords and five bystanders died in shooting rampage.
