The January 8, 2011 shooting in Tucson left six people dead and 13 severely wounded, including former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords.
Giffords was the lone gunman’s target at the meet-and-greet event outside a supermarket and was left partially paralyzed.
In commemoration of the tragedy, a ‘bell-ringing’ will be held at the Historic County Courthouse.
A memorial, called “Embrace,” located west of the courthouse in El Presidio Park, tells the lives lost and people wounded. Tucson.com
