The police in Pelham, N.H., responded to a shooting at a church Saturday morning, a town selectman said.
The shooting occurred at the New England Pentecostal Ministries church, the selectman, Kevin Cote, said. He did not have any additional information.
The Pelham Police Department said there was “a situation,” but that it was under control and that there was no danger to the public.
The church, according to its online calendar, hosted a meeting at 9:30 a.m. and was scheduled to hold a meeting for Domestic Abuse Month at noon.
The church was also scheduled to host a “celebration of life” service at noon for Luis Garcia, according to an obituary posted to Legacy.com and originally published in The Boston Globe on Oct. 7.
Mr. Garcia was killed last week, Geraldo Pagan said in an interview with television station WCVB. Mr. Pagan said he had arrived at the church for the service and was told by the police that “everything has been canceled.”
He said he was shocked to see all the police activity as he pulled up to the church.
On Twitter, the New York Police Department Counterterrorism Bureau said it was “closely monitoring the shooting incident at the New England Pentecostal church in Pelham, NH.” A spokeswoman said the department routinely monitors shootings.
