Arizona shooting victim: 'There's no closure'


The man accused of shooting a US congresswoman in Arizona and killing six others has pleaded guilty after a judge found him mentally competent.

Susan Hileman, who was injured as she accompanied slain nine-year-old Christina-Taylor Green to the meeting with Gabrielle Giffords that Jared Lougher attacked, told reporters that while the plea was the best she could expect, it would not give her closure.

"Christina's never going to ring my door bell again," she said. "The wound is open, there's a hole in the world."
