Shooting at church wedding leaves 2 wounded
PELHAM, N.H. — A wedding was underway at a New Hampshire church when a shooting Saturday morning wounded at least two people, Pelham Police Chief Joseph Roark said.
One person has been arrested in the shooting at the New England Pentecostal Church, Roark said. He did not identify them or provide a motive, saying the incident is still under investigation.
Roark confirmed two people with gunshot wounds were taken to hospitals, but their conditions were not immediately known. There were no fatalities, he said.
It happened around 10 a.m. ET Saturday at New England Pentecostal Ministries in Pelham, New Hampshire.
Local TV station, WCVB, is reporting that a witness got a call from his aunt saying the bishop of the church had been shot.
The area has been sealed off with tape as ambulances and dozens of other emergency services, including fire trucks, are at the scene.
Lowell General Hospital has received one patient from the incident, hospital spokesperson Angela Strunk tells CNN. There is no word on the extent of the individual’s injuries, Strunk says. The hospital is not expecting any other patients from the incident.
Pelham is a town of about 12,000 people 40 miles north of Boston.
