Former U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, who survived a mass shooting in her Arizona district two years ago, plans to visit NewtownConnecticut, the site of last month's deadly elementary school massacre, the Connecticut lieutenant governor's office said Thursday.

Giffords plans to attend a private event at a local home on Friday, Steven Jensen, spokesman for Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman, said in an email. The event will have no media access and Giffords' plans are still developing and may change.

Giffords retired from Congress last year to focus on her recovery from the January 2011 shooting in Tucson that left six dead and 12 others wounded.
