Residents of Moscow still in shock over deadly shootings

Posted: Updated:

MOSCOW, Idaho - Many questions hang over Moscow, Idaho, as residents cope with the shooting deaths of a church caretaker and a police officer by a gunman who then took his own life.

The First Presbyterian Church, where the caretaker and the gunman died, was decked in yellow crime scene tape Sunday and church members had to go elsewhere for Sunday services and to mourn the victims. The gunman sprayed dozens of bullets into a courthouse, killing the police officer and wounding a sheriff's deputy, Brannon Jordan, and a civilian.

The next stop was the nearby church where he apparently killed the caretaker and himself. The gunman's identity still hasn't been released and police aren't talking about a motive. Assistant Police Chief David Duke says the gunman definitely "wanted to draw people to the courthouse."
