Sheriffs identify the 13 wounded in Saturday's shooting

TUCSON - Pima County Sheriff's Office has identified the 13 people wounded in Saturday's tragedy in Tucson.

Kenneth Veeder, a previously unknown survivor of the shooting, is a 75-year-old retired Vietnam veteran in the Airborne Infantry division of the Army, he says. He was grazed in the lower part of the leg by a bullet when he went to see Gabrielle Giffords Saturday. He was released from the hospital the same day of the shooting.

Gabrielle Giffords remains in critical condition, but she is now breathing on her own, opening her eyes frequently, and carrying out more complex sequences of activity, doctors say.

Jenny Douglas told reporters in Tucson that 65-year-old Ron Barber, Giffords' Tucson district manager, was able to take a few steps with his walker before leaving the hospital early Friday. Barber was shot in the leg, face and neck area.

Pamela Simon, another Giffords staffer, returned to the Giffords office in an emotional reunion with her co-workers.

Colonel Bill Badger was grazed in the back of the head by one of the shooter's bullets, and was one of the men who heroically subdued him until police arrived.

Mavanell Stoddard's life was likely saved when her husband, Dorwan Stoddard, covered her body with his during the shooting.

James Tucker is a Raytheon employee, who is currently in stable condition and good spirits, according to a press release from his company.

Susan Hileman is a friend of the Green family who took Christina Green to the Giffords event. She was released from UMC Tuesday.

Here is the complete list:
