Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is now aware of who was killed during the January shooting rampage in Tucson that left her seriously wounded, her spokesman said.
C.J. Karamargin confirmed Friday that the Democratic politician was told in late July the names of the dead, including her aide Gabe Zimmerman; U.S. District Judge John Roll, a close friend; and 9-year-old Christina-Taylor Green, The Arizona Republic reported.
Gabby was has been aware for some time now that 6 people were killed and 12 injured. Her family and aids made the decision to not tell her who exactly had been killed because of the risk of upsetting her and delaying her progress with her own health.
Gabriel is able to talk with some speech impairment but she is still making progress.
