Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is in critical condition after being shot in the head at close range by a lone gunman Saturday morning while holding a public event, Fox News has confirmed.

Initial reports said that Giffords had died but a hospital spokesman and three House sources told Fox News that she remained alive in a nearby hospital where she was undergoing surgery.

At least 12 people were shot at Gifford’s “Your Corner” event held outside a Safeway grocery store in Tucson, including three members of the Democratic congresswoman’s staff in Arizona. Nine of them are in critical condition at the University of Arizona Medical Center.

A suspect is in custody.
