Services set to resume at church where shooting killed 3
VESTAVIA HILLS, Ala. (AP) – Worship services are set to resume at the Alabama church where a gunman opened fire and killed three senior citizens at a potluck dinner recently.
St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church announced church members would be gathering Sunday morning to worship after what it called the “unfathomable loss and grief" of Thursday’s shooting.
A man and two woman – all elderly church members – were killed in the gunfire. One survivor, Susan Sallin, told ABC 33/40 the group was having a happy dinner gathering when shots rang out.
Seventy-year-old Robert Findlay Smith was detained and is charged with capital murder in the deaths. Police haven’t disclosed a motive for the attack.
