Police say two people were killed and seven others wounded after a gunman entered a church in Knoxville, Tennessee, and opened fire with a shotgun.

Knoxville Police Chief Sterling Owen says a longtime church member was killed during the Sunday morning shooting. He identified the man killed as 60-year-old Greg McKendry, an usher at the church.

Police say the gunman is in custody.

A hospital spokeswoman says five of the wounded are in critical
condition.

A church member who arrived moments after the shooting says the
gunman opened fire as congregants watched a youth performance. He
says none of those injured were children.
