Guam - Hundreds gathered today in Arizona at a memorial mass for the victims of a shooting spree that killed six people and wounded 14 others. U.S. District Judge John Roll was among those who were killed. He was a friend of many in Guam's legal community, including District Court of Guam Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood and Attorney Rodney Jacob, who used to clerk for roll.

Jacob said, "I just remember him as a real gracious, compassionate, caring and dedicated person who showed me all of those qualities and also showed them to Tucson and also the United States. He was the chief judge of the Southern District of Arizona and it's on the border of Mexico and it has a huge crush of immigration cases so he was doing a job for our country."

22-year-old Justin Loughner opened fire at a community event hosted by Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who is recovering from a gunshot wound to her head.
