Members of Minnesota's congressional delegation, including Rep. Keith Ellison, held a short press conference to address the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others in Arizona on January 8, 2011. They spoke at the Minneapolis Convention Center, outside of Gov. Mark Dayton's inaugural ball. Ellison asked that people pray for Rep. Giffords, the families of the other victims and others affected by violence.
