OGDEN, Utah - A 35-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of walking into a Catholic church in Ogden, Utah, and shooting his father-in-law in the back of the head during Sunday Mass.
Police say Charles Richard Jennings Jr. was captured a few hours later after fleeing in a stolen pickup truck.
Parishioner Leon Bedford says the victim was sitting in a back pew with his wife when their daughter and son-in-law walked in holding hands. Bedford told the Ogden Standard-Examiner that the gunman "walked right up" to his father-in-law and pulled the trigger.
The victim was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in critical but stable condition.
Another parishioner said the congregation was told by a priest that the suspect and his wife had been involved in domestic disputes.
