TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening today, a press conference about the new January 8th Memorial, with only a few days to go until the third anniversary of the mass shooting, details on the memorial  will be discussed.

The press conference is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. in the courtyard at the Old Pima County Courthouse. 

Officials are planning to discuss details on the location of the permanent memorial, an update on the building process and information on an exhibit that will display all of the cards and messages the community left in memorials around Tucson after the shooting.

All of this is to honor those killed in a mass shooting that took place on January 8, 2011; six people lost their lives and 13 were injured, including former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, in the parking lot of a grocery store near Ina and Oracle.

Among the survivors are current Congressman Ron Barber and Pam Simon, both will be at today's press conference. 

Tucson News Now will have a crew on hand, stay with us both on air and online for updates on the conference.
