19 months after mass shooting, ex-Rep. Giffords moves back to Tucson

(CNN) – Nineteen months after she and 18 others were shot at a political event - six of them fatally - former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords returned home Sunday to her native southern Arizona, her husband said.

Giffords has spent most of the time since the January 8, 2011, attack at medical facilities in Houston recovering from being shot in the head at a "Congress On Your Corner" event outside a Safeway supermarket in Tucson. She's returned to her hometown several times since that shooting, though not permanently until now.
