Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Five people were injured in a shooting at a Phoenix, Ariz., office complex Wednesday afternoon. Check out this video, courtesy of Talking Points Memo, in which Gabby Giffords' husband, Mark Kelly, breaks the news of the shooting to lawmakers.

In response to a question from Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Kelly said:

While we were having this hearing -- and we certainly don't know the details -- but in Phoenix, Ariz., there is another shooting with multiple victims. It doesn't look like anybody's been killed but the initial reports are three people injured in Phoenix, Ariz., with multiple shots fired, and there are 50 police cars on the scene.

I certainly agree with you that a universal background check that's effective, that has the mental health records, that has the criminal records in it, will go a long way to saving people's lives.

Kelly's wife, Gabby Giffords, testified earlier this morning. Watch her statement here.
