Gunfire Erupts at Small-Town Wedding

Newser — Neal Colgrass

Wedding guests tackled a man after two people were shot at a New Hampshire church Saturday morning, WMUR reports. Two people were shot and hospitalized, a third had unspecified injuries, and no one was killed at the New England Pentecostal church in Pelham, police say.

The shooter apparently showed up after the wedding had started, but little else is known. "This does not seem to be a random event at this point," says Pelham Police Chief Joseph Roark.

There was initially confusion about which event was underway—a meeting tied to domestic abuse was slated for the morning, and a funeral service for a man fatally shot was on at noon, per USA Today—but CNN confirms it was a wedding with 40-some guests in attendance.
