Colorado Springs Police have released the names of those killed and wounded in Sunday's shooting at New Life Church.
18-year old Stephanie Works and 16-year old Rachel Works were killed. 51-year David Works suffered gunshot wounds to the abdomen and is listed in fair condition at Penrose Hospital. 40-year old Judy Purcell was shot in the shoulder. 59-year old Larry Bourbonnais was wounded in the left arm. Both Burcell and Bourbonnais were treated and released.
The suspect's name has not been released yet.
Senior Pastor Brady Boyd of New Life Church in Colorado Springs said trauma counselors were being made available today at the Rockrimmon Campus Community Center of Woodmen Valley Chapel.
Boyd said members of New Life Church would meet as a church family at some point this week to begin the process of grieving and recovery.
He said care would be provided for those who were wounded, and for the family who lost two children
Boyd said the security guard who shot the suspect was a volunteer at the church who had prior law enforcement experience. He says had she not acted, many more could have been killed. Boyd says she was in place as part of a security plan enacted after the shooting earlier Sunday in Arvada.
Meanwhile, Authorities are searching a home in Englewood, looking for any link between two shooting sprees at Christian religious centers that left people baffled and stunned.
Law enforcement officers say the home may be related to the Colorado Springs shooting case. Officers could be seen coming and going from the home Monday morning, and at one point, they were searching bushes in front.
Arvada Deputy Police Chief Gary Creager says there's a good possibility that Sunday's shootings in Arvada and Colorado Springs are linked, but --quote-- "we have to prove that they are."
New Life Pastor Boyd said Monday morning he knew of no connection between the suspect and New Life Church.
During a late-night conference on Sunday, Colorado Springs Police Chief Richard Myers told reporters a female security guard shot and killed the suspect, after he had already shot 5 New Life members, killing two.
