TUCSON - A permanent memorial is planned for downtown Tucson in remembrance of the 2011 mass shooting that left six people dead and injured 13 others, including former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Officials announced their plans for a permanent memorial Monday morning outside the courthouse.
The memorial will be placed at the Old Pima County Courthouse and is expected to take several years to complete.
The site was chosen because it represents the center of government, Jan. 8 Memorial Foundation president Stephen Brigham said.
Rep. Ron Barber was in attendance.
This Wednesday marks three years since the shooting.
