According to US news sites, the photo was taken a few seconds before the congresswoman was shot in the head and wounded 18 others. Six other people died including 9-year old Christina Taylor Green.

As shown here in the photo, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was wearing a bright red coat with her hands clasped as she talks with Jim and Doris Tucker. Jim was among those who have been wounded.

The said photo was said to be the first and only photo that was released from the ‘Congress on Your Corner‘ event.

Incidentally, Tucson shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner was charged by a grand jury on Friday for 49 counts of murder, where he was earlier charged of frustrated murder of Congresswoman Giffords.

As of this writing, Rep. Giffords is still in Houston rehab for her recovery and reports said that she now can talk and sing some of her favorite songs as part of her continuous therapy.
