The shooting happened around 9 p.m. local time at the Mother of Mercy Mission Catholic Church in downtown Phoenix, Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos said, adding that police responded to a burglary call at the church.

The crime scene was inside the church’s living quarters, not in the sanctuary, Martos said. Authorities are continuing to look for suspects. A car missing from the shooting scene -- a Mazda Tribute -- was located nearby with no one inside, according to Martos.
