Suspects Sought in California Church Shooting

ICC Note

“We’re not scared, but we’re sort of mystified because this is God’s church,”

02/15/2010 United States (CNN)-Police are seeking a pair of suspects in a Sunday church service shooting in Richmond , California , that left two teenagers injured, though authorities are still looking for a motive in what they say was a targeted operation.

Police believe they have identified at least two of the three hooded men who entered New Gethsemane Church of God in Christ about 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Amid a congregation of about 100, one of them opened fire.

“We’re not scared, but we’re sort of mystified because this is God’s church,” said Earl Young, a church member since 1967. “We refuse to let the devil make us run and hide because that’s probably what they want us to do.”
