Former Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords will visit Newtown, Connecticut Friday. That's where a gunman shot and killed 20 students and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School, before turning the gun on himself last month.   

According to the governor's office, Giffords is expected to attend an event at a private residence.

Giffords was shot in the head by a gunman at a rally in Tuscon, Arizona nearly two years ago.
