GREEN VALLEY (AP) — U.S. Rep. Ron Barber said the January 2011 mass shooting in Tucson that killed six and forced his predecessor, Gabrielle Giffords, to resign because of brain injuries, haunts him every Saturday.


Speaking Saturday in Green Valley to commemorate the shooting’s two-year anniversary, Barber said that he remembers the shooting every Saturday at the exact time it began, at 10:11 a.m.


“I actually reflect a lot on Saturday morning, no matter what Saturday it is,” said Barber. “I reflect on it because It’s often —whether I’m in Washington or whether I’m in Tucson — I wake up in the morning on Saturday, I look at the clock, and I remember what we were oing almost two years ago.”
