Giffords likely shot in front, not back of head

TUCSON, ARIZ. (AP) - Doctors now think that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords may have been shot in the front of the head, not the back.

After she was wounded last weekend, doctors said the bullet traveled the length of the left side of the congresswoman’s brain, entering the back of the skull and exiting the front.

At a briefing Tuesday, Dr. Peter Rhee said it now looks like she was probably shot in the front, with the bullet going out the back, although they can’t say for certain.

He said that’s based on consultations with two specialists who came to Tucson, Ariz.
