Former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords moved home to Tucson, a local Arizona newspaper reported Monday.

Giffords has spent the last nearly 18 months in Houston, where she has been undergoing rehabilitation after being shot during a constituent event in Tucson in January 2011.

Giffords, who resigned from Congress in January 2012 to concentrate on her rehabilitation, will continue her therapy in Tucson, according to the Arizona Daily Star.

Giffords, who is Jewish and a member of a local synagogue, was shot in the head at a Jan. 8, 2011 meet-the-constituents event outside a supermarket in Tucson. The gunman, Jared Loughner, killed six people and wounded 13 others, including Giffords.
