Tucson park named after youngest shoot-out victim
Tucson (Arizona, US), Mar.2 (ANI): A park here has been named in honor of Christina-Taylor Green, the youngest victim of the January 8 shootings.
The Canada del Oro Christina-Taylor Green Memorial River Park was officially dedicated Monday.
The Arizona Daily Star says about 250 people attended the ceremony.
Nine-year-old Christina-Taylor Green was among six people killed at a congressional meet-and-greet outside a Tucson supermarket. Thirteen other people were wounded including U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords.
John Green says his daughter used to play at the park. Pima County officials say they'll put up a plaque in the park to commemorate Christina's life.
According to CBS News, she will also have a Little League baseball field in Tucson named in her honor next month. Christina's family is expected to throw out the first pitch when the Canyon Del Oro Little League season begins April 1. (ANI)
