Ad Feedback

A suspect in a church shooting in Richmond, California, has been apprehended.

A 15-year-old boy is being held in connection with the attack at New Gethsemane Church of God in Christ last Sunday.

Police say they are looking for other suspects in the shooting. Three males wearing black sweatshirt hoods pulled over their heads, entered the church.

While the choir was singing, one of the suspects fired five shots with a pistol, wounding two brothers sitting in the pews and sending parishioners diving for cover.

The boy was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy just after 7 a.m. at a Richmond home, as officers executed search warrants at that address and at least two others, Sgt. Bisa French told the San Francisco Chronicle.

The boy's name was withheld because he is a minor. Police have not revealed a motive for the shooting, but residents say the attack may have been gang-related.
