Priest Shot Dead, Another Wounded In Phoenix


Phoenix police were seeking the gunman who shot a priest to death and critically wounded another Wednesday night.

Police spokesperson Steve Martos tells CBS News officers responded to a "burglary" in the living quarters of a church just after 9 p.m. reports it occurred at the Mother of Mercy Mission in the Capitol District.

The caller was actually the surviving victim, who was rushed to a hospital, Martos told CBS News. His wound apparently wasn't from a bullet.

The other victim was pronounced at a hospital, Martos said

A Mazda Tribute belonging to one of the priests was stolen but found a short time later, he added.

No motive was known early Thursday.

Names of victims haven't been released.
