BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Investigators are trying to figure out the motive behind Sunday's shooting rampage in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, that left five people dead.

Four of the victims were killed while worshipping in church.

A fifth person, the suspect's wife, was found dead in a car at a nearby apartment complex.

Police have not identified the victims, but church member Kenneth Green says he was related to all of them.

He says his mother, aunt, uncle, and cousin were those killed in the church.

And he says the suspect's wife, Erica Bell, was also his cousin.

He says Bell's mother was pastor at The Ministry of Jesus Christ
church. She was wounded.

The suspect, 25-year-old Anthony Bell, is in custody.
