UPDATE: Rep. Gabrielle Giffords condition improves

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Rep. Gabrielle Giffords condition is improving and she is now in serious condition at a hospital after being shot in the head about a week ago.

The University of Arizona said in a news release Sunday that the congresswoman is continuing to do well. The release says her condition changed from critical to serious because she is no longer
on a ventilator. She is breathing on her own.

Giffords was one of 19 people shot at a Safeway store Jan. 8.

Six people were killed.
