Shooting at Church Leaves One Killed in Canada

A 78-year-old man is dead in the wake of a shooting in Salmon Arm, British Columbia which left another person injured, the Canadian television network CBC reported on Monday, citing authorities.

“Police have determined that at least one of the victims was known to the suspect, and it is not believed at this time the event was religiously motivated,” Staff Sgt. Scott West, the Salmon Arm police detachment commander, said, as quoted by the broadcaster.

The victim was confirmed to be a 78-year-old man, while the injured has been hospitalized, according to media reports.

The incident took place late on Sunday, when a 25-year-old man entered the Church of Christ during an event and fired at two parishioners. The suspect was taken into custody after being wrestled to the ground by other churchgoers, CBC reported.
