TUCSON -- U.S. Rep. Ron Barber plans to attend a vigil Sunday evening for the victims of the school shooting in Connecticut.

Barber was wounded in the January 2011 mass shooting in Tucson that killed six and forced his predecessor, Gabrielle Giffords, to resign because of brain injuries.

Barber will be among the speakers at a 5:30 p.m. event at Roberts/Naylor Middle School sponsored by Homicide Survivors Inc.

After the remarks, participants will be asked to light candles honoring the 20 children and six adults killed Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
