MADISON (AP) - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has ordered all state and U.S. flags to be flown at half-staff through sundown Friday in remembrance of those killed and injured in an assassination attempt against Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Walker issued a statement Monday saying his prayers were with the injured Giffords as well as the families of those who were killed in the shooting. Walker says the events "should cause everyone to pause and examine how we treat others, not just in politics, but in life."
Giffords is in intensive care after being shot in the head.
Prosecutors have charged a 22-year-old Jared Loughner on a series of counts, including attempted assassination of a member of Congress.
