Victim Susan Hileman scolds Jared Loughner over Arizona shooting rampage of Gabrielle Giffords

TUCSON, Ariz. - A woman who was shot three times by a gunman at an Arizona political event for then-U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has scolded the suspect, staring him down in court while visibily shaking.

Susan Hileman was shot three times when Jared Lee Loughner killed six people and wounded 13 others, including Giffords, in a January 2011 shooting rampage outside a grocery store in Tucson, Ariz.

Hileman was among his victims testifying Thursday at a sentencing hearing where he is expected to get life in prison.

Hileman kept glancing back at Loughner as she spoke to the court, and he looked at her. Loughner's parents had their heads down as Hileman said Loughner's parents, college and community had failed Loughner.

Loughner's mother Amy could be seen whiping her eyes.
