One dead, one hospitalized, man in custody after shooting in B.C. church VANCOUVER — A 25-year-old man is in custody following a shooting at a church in Salmon Arm, B.C., that left one dead and sent another to hospital on Sunday morning. Salmon Arm RCMP say the shooting happened during an event at the Church of Christ in the community about 100 kilometres north of Kelowna, and investigators do not believe it was religiously motivated. They say a man entered the church at about 10:30 a.m. and allegedly shot two parishioners. Police say several parishioners wrestled the alleged shooter to the ground, and officers seized a rifle. They say one person died at the scene, while the other was taken to hospital in stable condition.

PENTICTON, B.C. — RCMP say four people were found dead today in three locations within a five-kilometre radius in Penticton, B.C.

Supt. Ted De Jager says a lone male suspect is in custody.

He says the four people who died were shot and the victims were targeted.

De Jager says the Mounties received a call about a possible shooting in the downtown at about 10:30 a.m. and the suspect was taken into custody about an hour later.

Earlier in the day, police cordoned off the city's downtown and were telling people to avoid the area because of a serious, unfolding situation.

They asked the public to follow the direction of police and to avoid areas bordered by Eckhardt Avenue and Lakeshore Drive, and Main and Power streets.

"I understand that this is a deeply troubling incident that has taken place in our community," De Jager told a news conference.
