Gabrielle Giffords, Mark Kelly React To Aurora, Colorado Shootings

Posted: Updated:

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), who was shot in the head in January 2011 and seriously wounded, and her husband, Mark Kelly, said they were "horrified" by the mass shootings Friday at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, at a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises."

Kelly tweeted Friday morning:

Mark Kelly
Gabby and I were horrified to hear of the tragedy in Colorado last night. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.

Giffords resigned her congressional seat in January 2012 to focus on her recovery.

Seventy one people were shot and 12 were killed in Friday's attack, according to Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates.
