A Jan. 8 shooting rampage in Tucson, Ariz., left six dead and 13 wounded, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head at close range while hosting a constituents meeting. Gunman Jared Lee Loughner, 22, has been charged in the shooting.
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama will travel to Tucson, Ariz., on Wednesday to attend a memorial service for the victims of last weekend's shooting rampage.
The University of Arizona said the service would take place at 6 p.m. local time on the campus and would be free and open to the public.
Democratic congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is in critical condition after being shot in the head Saturday. Six others died and more than a dozen were wounded outside a supermarket where Giffords had set up a booth to hear the concerns of constituents.
Obama observed a moment of silence for the victims at the White House on Monday. He said the nation is shocked and grieving.
