Kelly shared this statement via Twitter:

Gabby and I were horrified to hear of the tragedy in Colorado last night. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.— Mark Kelly

Daniel Hernandez, the intern who stayed with Giffords until paramedics arrived, also issued a statement, this one to the Huffington Post:

12. More than just a number. It is people who through no fault of their own lost their lives tragically last night. It is too easy to let the number become that just another statistic. Take a moment today to honor their memory not by pausing and having a moment of silence but instead by doing something. Anything that will help others. Donate, volunteer, act.
