Fatal Shooting In Colorado Church


Four people have been shot outside a large Colorado evangelical church, the second shooting in a day linked to a religious community in the state.

The incident occurred outside the New Life Church in Colorado Springs. The condition of the victims is not immediately known.

Earlier, two people were killed and two others were injured when a gunman entered a training center for young missionaries in the Denver suburb of Arvada, about 110 km away from Colorado Springs.

Police said the description of the shooter was similar in both cases, a white man wearing a dark hat and dark jacket.

The New Life Church, which has about 14,000 members, was founded by pastor Ted Haggard, who resigned in disgrace in 2006 after admitting to sexually immoral conduct.
