Newtown, CT — Former Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords will attend a private event in Newtown, Connecticut on Fridday. According to Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy's office, Giffords is scheduled to attend an event at a private residence. Newtown is still reeling from a deadly shooting last month after a gunman forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School killing 20 students and six staff members. Giffords was shot in the head two years ago at a campaign event at a shopping plaza in Tucson, Arizona that left six people dead including a 9-year old girl. The gunman, Jared Loughner, was sentenced to life in prison in November.
