Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says "some" have died in the shooting spree in Tucson, Ariz., where Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was "gravely wounded."

U.S. Capitol Police say a shooter is in custody.

Obama calls the shooting "an unspeakable tragedy" and that such "a senseless and terrible act of violence has no place in a free society."

The attack took place in an area where the lawmaker was meeting with constituents.
