It's Standing Room Only at Charleston Church Vigil

Charleston is in mourning after a gunman stormed the historic black Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, killing nine people. Hundreds on Thursday afternoon packed into Morris Brown A.M.E. Church, which is across the street from "Mother Emanuel," for an emotional prayer vigil. The church quickly reached capacity, and a large crowd gathered just outside its doors. The church that the gunman targeted on Wednesday is at the center of Charleston's African-American community because of the role it played through black history in the South.
