In the United States, a priest was killed in a church. An attacker had previously entered the building and was hiding there after a shootout.
A pastor was shot dead in his church in Texas on Sunday. Sheriff Larry Smith told KLTV that the clergyman discovered an intruder in the church shortly before the service in the Methodist Church in Winona. When he opened the door to the toilet with his gun drawn, the man snatched the pistol from him and shot him. Then he fled.
The police were able to arrest the perpetrator a short time later after a chase. The man was hiding in the church after a shooting the night before.
The Texas Governor Greg Abbott expressed his condolences to the family of the slain pastor. In Texas, there are repeated firearm attacks in churches. In November 2017, an attacker killed 26 people during a service in a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, San Antonio.
