Houston church holds prayer service for Tucson victims

A local church held a special service to pray for Tucson and the entire nation. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee organized Sunday's service at Mount Horeb Missionary Baptist Church near downtown Houston. She said the shooting hits close to home because Congresswoman Giffords is married to NASA astronaut Mark Kelly.

"She is fighting for her life," said Jackson Lee. "And as she fights for her life, we in Houston have become even more engaged with her as a part of our family."

Johnson Space Center Director Michael Coats also spoke at the event.

Tuesday on Live at 5, our own Tom Koch will sit down for an exclusive one-on-one with Mark Kelly for his first local interview following the shooting.
