PHOENIX -- About 200 people took part in a candlelight vigil for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of a mass shooting in Tucson Saturday morning.

The vigil was held at the State Capitol less than 12 hours after the shooting that killed six people, including a 9-year-old girl and a federal judge, and wounded 13 others.

Witnesses said they believe Giffords was the intended target. The congresswoman is in critical condition at University Medical Center.

The suspect in the shooting, Jared Loughner, is in custody, but investigators believe he did not act alone. They are actively searching for a "person of interest."
