The six people who died in Saturday's assassination attempt of an Arizona Congresswoman ranged from a highly-esteemed Federal judge to a child born on September 11, 2001.

Special Section: Tragedy in Tucson

Nineteen people were shot at the shooting rampage in Tucson, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Among the dead:

U.S. District Judge John McCarthy Roll, 63. Roll, who was appointed to the federal bench by President George H.W. Bush in 1991, earned his law degree from the University of Arizona in 1972. He has been the chief judge of the district of Arizona since 2006.

In 2009 Roll received several death threats following his ruling in a case involving migrant workers. He was placed under fulltime U.S. Marshals Service protection, which Roll described to the Arizona Republic as "unnerving and invasive." It was discontinued after a month.

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said Saturday that he did not believe Giffords was the gunman's intended target. Roll had just stopped by the event to see his friend Giffords after attending Mass when the shooting occurred.

"Unfortunately, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time," said Dupnik.

Gabriel Zimmerman, 30. Zimmerman was Giffords' director of community outreach. A graduate of Rincon High School where he was active in student government, he was recently engaged to be married.

Friends attending a vigil Saturday told CBS Affiliate KOLD that Zimmerman was "caring," "motivated," "a free spirit," and "a man who understood how to live life."

Christina Taylor Green, 9. Born in Maryland on Sept. 11, 2001, Greene was featured in a book called "Faces of Hope: Babies Born on 9/11." Greene was involved in many activities, from ballet to baseball. She had just received her first Holy Communion at St. Odilia's Catholic Church in Tucson, Catholic Diocese of Tucson officials told The Arizona Daily Star.

Greg Segalini, Christina's uncle, told the Arizona Republic that a neighbor was going to the Giffords constituent event and invited the girl along because she had just been elected to the student council and was interested in government.

"The next thing you know this happened. How do you prepare for something like this? My little niece got killed - took one on the chest and she is dead," Segalini said outside the girl's house.

"She was real special and real sweet," he said.

KOLD reports the neighbor was also wounded in the shooting.

Dorwin Stoddard, 76, a pastor at Mountain Ave. Church of Christ. When the shooting started, Stoddard tried to protect his wife by laying on top of her. She was wounded in the attack.

Dorthy Morris, 76.

Phyllis Scheck, 79.

Along with Rep. Giffords, who is in critical condition, the 13 wounded included two Giffords staff members: Ron Barber, her deputy director, and community outreach worker Pam Simon.

Doctors said the other living victims of the rampage are doing relatively well and had been transferred from the ICU to the ward - a lesser amount of care, which was a good indication of how well everyone is doing.

"The people who needed surgery are all recovering well, and so far we're extremely happy with the prognosis of all those other individuals," said Dr. Peter Rhee, chief of trauma at the University Medical Center in Tucson.
