It's been three years since the Jan. 8 shootings in Tucson, and the community has prepared various events around town to commemorate the tragedy's anniversary.

The memorials began Monday, but most will be taking place Wednesday and extending until Jan. 19 with a concert at Hotel Congress.

The University of Arizona Medical Center, where many of the victims were taken for treatment, will have a moment of silence and a ringing of bells at 10:10 a.m. That evening, the Tucson City Council will host a memorial at the City Hall, 255 W. Alameda.

U.S. Rep. Ron Barber, who was among the wounded that day, will speak on the floor of the House Wednesday, said a press release from the congressman's office.

Barber was district director for then U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, when a gunman opened fired at a north Tucson grocery store during a Congress On Your Corner event. Six people were killed at the shooting - among them nine-year-old Christina-Taylor Green and U.S. District Court Judge John Roll - and 13 more wounded, including Giffords who was shot in the head.

On Monday, the city announced it will be building a permanent memorial commemorating not only victims, but also first responders and the Tucson community.

The official memorial will be located at the Pima County Courthouse.
