Steve Inskeep remembers Dorothy Morris, one of the victims who died in Saturday's mass shooting at a public event held by Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.


Throughout this morning we're following the story of Gabrielle Giffords, the congresswoman shot on Saturday, she's still recovering. Six people were killed at her event at a grocery store. Some of the most punishing stories of the victims are those who came to that event with their spouses and left alone.

George and Dorothy Morris attended the event. They'd been married more than 50 years, raised two daughters. On Saturday, the gunman shot George Morris twice. He survived. Dorothy Morris was killed at age 76.
