|Suspect James Junior Minter|
A mother, her newborn, and a pastor were shot Sunday in an Alabama church, and the baby's father is in custody, authorities said.
James Junior Minter, 26, is accused of opening fire inside the Oasis Tabernacle Church in Selma, Alabama. He faces three counts of attempted murder, Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson told CNN.
"The mother is in critical condition. She and the baby were sent to Birmingham for medical treatment. The pastor is at a local hospital in Selma," Jackson said.
The pastor was shot as he tried to get the gun out of the shooter's hand, he said.
It seems likely that the suspect was upset over the recent break up and visitation with his son.
So of course he shot the baby, which is what people living in a gun culture do to solve all of their problems.
