Authorities investigating New Hampshire church shooting: Governor

The New England Pentecostal Ministries and church office on Bridge Street in Pelham

A man and a woman were shot, police said.

She did not have identifying details for the patient, and could not confirm whether the injuries were caused by gunshots or something else. At least one person from the scene was admitted to Lowell General Hospital, a hospital spokesman said. "Upon arrival, a wedding was occurring at the church and the police officers discovered a suspected shooter being detained and subdued by the guests of the wedding".

"This does not seem to be a random event at this point", he said.

A spokeswoman for Lowell General Hospital in MA confirmed that the hospital was treating one victim from the shooting, but did not release any additional information.

The accused shooter, an unidentified man who fired a handgun, was in custody, police said.

Pelham is about 40 miles north of Boston.

Authorities responded to the New England Pentecostal Church in Pelham around 10 a.m. Saturday.


He also told family he recognized the gunman as the stepson of Luis Garcia, a Manchester minister fatally shot on October 1 inside a Londonderry home, New Hampshire Union Leader reported. The affiliate reported he was shot inside a home in Londonderry and that a suspect was arrested.

This is a developing story, originally published by New Hampshire Public Radio, with additional reporting from WBUR.

The church was also to be the site of celebration of life service two hours later, which was canceled due to the shooting.

The 60-year-old was killed earlier this month.

Those planning to attend the Garcia service were shocked by the shooting.

Local police have turned the criminal investigation for Saturday's shooting over to investigators with the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office and New Hampshire Police Major Crime Unit.
