Mayor Jonathan Rothschild plans to ring bells on the upcoming third anniversary of the Jan. 8 mass shooting in Tucson.

He asks the public to ring bells on Wednesday, Jan. 8 in remembrance of the six who died: Christina-Taylor Green, Dorothy "Dot" Morris, Judge John Roll, Phyllis Schneck, Dorwan Stoddard and Gabriel "Gabe" Zimmerman. The bell ringing will also honor the 13 others who were shot but lived, including former congresswoman Gabby Giffords and Congressman Ron Barber.

Mayor Rothschild will ring the bell 19 times at Fire Central at 10:10 a.m.

"Tucsonans will never forget that day," Mayor Rothschild stated in a news release, "but it is more important that we never forget the victims. Those we lost contributed greatly to this community, and are greatly missed."
