1 killed, 2 injured in church shooting

LAKELAND, FL (WFLX) -- A gunman opened fire inside a central Florida church, critically wounding two church leaders.

Investigators said Jeremiah Fogle killed his wife Theresa in their home before walking a block to Greater Faith Christian Center Church, where he targeted the pastor and an assistant pastor during a prayer service.

Two worshippers tackled Fogle, and held him down until investigators arrived.

Officials said Fogle and his wife were members of the church at one time, and were married there.

Relatives say there were no signs of trouble in the couple's marriage.

The Polk County Sheriff said Fogle had more bullets in his pocket, and calls the two men who stopped him heroes.

Fogle will be charged with murder and at least two counts of attempted murder.
