CORRECTS FRIDAY TO JAN. 9 NOT JAN. 8 - Flowers, teddy bears and inspirational posters line a room at the Arizona History Museum in Tucson in this Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015 photo. The items were left at the scene of the Jan. 8, 2011 shooting in Tucson that left six dead and 13 wounded. Former Rep. Gabby Giffords was the target and suffered a gunshot wound to the head from which she is still recovering from. So many items were left at the shooting site and at University Medical Center, where victims were treated, that a non-profit group stored them in a warehouse for several years. They have been on display at an exhibit at the museum since October, 2014, but will be removed Friday, Jan. 9. (AP Photo/Astrid Galván)TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The rows of flowers, teddy bears and inspirational posters that once lined a parking lot where six were killed and 13, including former Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords, were injured in a mass shooting have found a temporary home in a Tucson museum.
