Ohio Pastor Shot Dead During Sunday Church Services

An Ohio pastor was shot and killed while delivering services from the pulpit of a Dayton church on Sunday.

Witnesses said the suspected gunman is the pastor’s brother, who has been taken into custody, according to the Associated Press. He was seated in the pew before he allegedly walked up to the pastor and opened fire as the choir was singing, the AP reports.

There were more than 20 people inside the St. Peter’s Missionary Baptist Church when the violence erupted about 12:30 p.m. and sent congregants running, according to WDTN. The news station identified the pastor as 70-year-old William Schooler.

Police later identified the brother as Daniel Gregory Schooler, 69, according to WHIO.
