YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - Construction has been completed on a new federal courthouse in downtown Yuma that is named after the judge who was killed in the Tucson shooting rampage.

The Yuma Sun reports (http://bit.ly/12Q2j7G) that a grand opening ceremony for the John M. Roll United States Courthouse is being planned for the fall.

Roll was among the six people killed in the mass shooting in January 2011.

Then-U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 12 others were wounded in the attack.

Roll served as chief federal judge in Arizona.

Roll had signed off on the design of new courthouse days before his death, a project he considered his top priority for several years to make a reality.

The $25 million courthouse includes two courtrooms, judges' chambers, detention cells and other court-related offices.
