Gunfire breaks out in Portland church parking lot


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A Portland church went into lockdown and cancelled services after shots were fired in the building’s parking lot.

Police had responded to Grace Christian Fellowship after reports of gunfire Sunday morning. Pastor Kelly Cohoe says none of the church members were involved or injured in the shooting.

He says footage from the church’s security camera shows a man being chased by two other men, including one who was firing a gun in the air.

Police say officers found two guns nearby.

The church sent out a message to its congregation telling members that the Sunday services were cancelled.

Police have not yet identified any suspects and it’s unclear if any arrests have been made.
