Two People Shot During Wedding Ceremony at A New Hampshire Church

PELHAM, N.H. (AP) – Police say two people were shot during a wedding ceremony at a New Hampshire church before guests subdued the shooter until police arrived.

Pelham’s Police Chief Joseph Roark says no fatalities were reported in the Saturday morning shooting at New England Pentecostal church.  Roark says a man and a woman were shot. A third person suffered minor injuries while subduing the male suspect. Roark said the people in the church “tackled” him.  Roark would not provide additional details, although he said it was “not a random shooting.”

It’s unknown if the two people shot were part of the wedding or there as guests. Police said the shooter arrived at the scene after the wedding began. Roark said the New Hampshire attorney general’s office would provide more details later Saturday.
