TUCSON, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., will attend a candlelight vigil Sunday to mark the anniversary of a shooting attack in which she was injured, her office said.

Giffords was hosting a constituent event outside of a grocery store Jan. 8, 2011, when a gunman shot her and 18 others, killing six. The defendant, Jared Loughner, is in federal custody.
