Honoring Gabriel Zimmerman at U.S. Capitol

A Capitol Hill staffer, who lost his life in a shooting spree nearly one year ago, will forever be remembered in Washington.  The House plans on renaming a room in the Capitol Visitor Center after Gabe Zimmerman.

Zimmerman worked for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. He was with the Arizona Democrat when a gunman opened fire in Tucson in January.  Zimmerman and five other people were killed in the shooting.  Giffords was injured; she continues to recuperate in Houston.

The House will vote today on a measure that would name room HVC 215 as the “Gabriel Zimmerman Meeting Room.”

Gabe Zimmerman was the first Congressional staffer murdered in the line of duty.
