The United States is once again in mourning after a shooting. A suspect was arrested and taken into custody Thursday, June 16, after shooting outside a church in Vestavia Hills, Alabama (southern United States). One person was killed and two others injured, city police said. “Three people at Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church were hit by bullets. Two victims are in a local hospital receiving treatment. Unfortunately, one victim died of his injuries,” Vestavia Hills Police said on their Facebook page.

Vestavia Hills Police said there were “no additional threats” to the city . The shooting took place in front of the church shortly after 6 p.m. (2300 GMT), while a “potluck”, a community meal where everyone brings a dish, was organized, according to the Saint Stephen's website.
