Dayton police said they did not know the motive for the shooting, which they said occurred inside a church office during the service.

The pastor was shot four times with a stolen .380 caliber hand gun, with the final shot witnessed by Helen Schooler, his wife of 49 years, according to court documents.

“The defendant then laid the gun down and waited for police who took him into custody,” according to a criminal complaint in the matter.
