WASHINGTON (AP) — The chief of staff to U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords says the Arizona congresswoman has not yet been told the details of a Jan. 8 shooting spree in Tucson that wounded her and 12 others and killed six, including a staff member.

Pia Carusone said Wednesday on CBS's "The Early Show" that Giffords knows there was a traumatic event, but her doctors have said it would not be fair to tell her everything that happened until she can ask more detailed questions.

Giffords was shot in the head. She is undergoing rehabilitation in Houston and can have simple conversations.

Jared Loughner is charged in federal court with killing a federal judge and Giffords aide Gabriel Zimmerman and attempting to kill Giffords and two other staffers.
