A gunman opened fire in the sanctuary of a church, killing a pastor and two worshippers and wounding several others, authorities said. One of the victims Sunday was the Rev. Kernal Rehobson, 44, who led the local congregation of predominantly Micronesian worshippers holding the service at the First Congregational Church in southwestern Missouri in the central US, police said. The other two victims were male members of the congregation, whose names were not released, The Joplin Globe reported. About 25 to 50 people were briefly held hostage at the church until the gunman surrendered, Neosho spokeswoman Desiree Bridges said.
