TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is finishing the meet-and-greet political event Monday that erupted in a deadly shooting spree a year ago.

The announcement Sunday of her appearance in Tucson comes the same day the democrat revealed she plans to resign her congressional seat.

Giffords’ office says the congresswoman will finish the Congress On Your Corner event. In a private gathering, she will meet with some of the people who were at the Jan. 8, 2011 event in a Safeway parking lot when a gunman killed six people and wounded 13 others, including Giffords.

Those attending will include some of the wounded, others who helped them, and people who subdued the attacker.

Also Monday, Giffords will visit a family assistance center that was set up after she was seriously wounded.

Her office says the visit will be her final act as congresswoman in her district.
