U.S. Senate Republican Whip Jon Kyl made the following statement regarding today's tragic shooting attack upon federal Judge John Roll, U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and several others in Tucson:
"Caryll and I send our most heartfelt condolences to the family of Judge John Roll and the others who were killed and injured today in Tucson. Judge Roll, who presided over the federal District Court in Arizona, was an exceptional judge and a good friend.
"We pray for the recovery of Representative Giffords and the others who remain in critical condition. Congresswoman Giffords is also a good friend, and I find it especially saddening that such a heinous crime would occur while she was fulfilling her congressional responsibilities.
"All of us will work to ensure that justice will be served fully and swiftly."
