TUCSON, Ariz.- A surgeon at the University Medical Center in Tucson, Ariz., says Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is able to communicate.

Dr. Michael Lemole said at a news conference on Sunday that Giffords responded to doctors' commands.

Lemole says the gunshot went through the left side of her head and that surgeons worked to reduce pressure from swelling in the brain by removing bone fragments.

Giffords was shot by a gunman on Saturday as she met with constituents at a supermarket. Six others were killed, and 14 wounded, including the congresswoman.
