PHOENIX (AP) — A photo taken of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords shortly before a shooting rampage in Tucson shows the Arizona congresswoman listening intently as she talks with two of her constituents, one of whom also was injured.

Shortly after the photo was taken, a man walked quickly up to the group and shot Giffords and 18 other people.

Six were killed in the Jan. 8 attack, including a federal judge and a 9-year-old girl, and 13 more were wounded, including Giffords.

Giffords' staff posted the photo of her and Jim and Doris Tucker of Tucson on Facebook Friday. Many fans of her page commented on the photo by Friday afternoon.

One person wrote, "What a haunting picture." Another wrote, "It is just so sad to know what is about to happen ..."
