Another gun free zone shooting

1 dead in Ill. church shooting

MARYVILLE, Ill. – A hospital spokeswoman in a community in Illinois says one person has arrived dead from a church where a shooting reportedly occurred.

Natalie Head of Anderson Hospital in Maryville says two other people transferred from First Maryville Baptist Church were wounded in the suburb of St. Louis, Mo.

Illinois State Police Lt. Scott Compton confirms that there was a shooting in a Maryville church. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch and KDSK-TV Channel 5 of St. Louis say the shooting occurred at the First Baptist Church in Maryville.

The Post-Dispatch also says the suspected attacker is in custody.

Maryville is about 20 miles northeast of St. Louis.

I guess if you want to go on a rampage its a pretty safe place to be the only one armed.
