BANGOR — Police are investigating an early morning shooting in the parking lot of a Bangor church.
Bangor police Sgt. Wade Betters said the shooting happened at about 3 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of Rock Church at 1195 Ohio St.
He said a man was wounded, taken to a local hospital and has since been released.
The pastor of the church said they were closed at the time of the shooting.
“Someone randomly loses it in our parking lot and it’s unfortunate that it happened,” said Kirk Winters, pastor of Rock Church. “So we came to church and they were able to isolate the parking lot where the shooting happened. We had all of our there regular scheduled services.”
“We never missed a beat and the shooting was completely unrelated to the church,” said Winters. “No one was injured here, so we have no real concerns going forward.”
According to Betters, the suspect fled from the scene.
He said the Bangor Police Department Criminal Investigation Division is working on the case.
Anyone with information about the person or people involved is asked to notify Detective Kyle Pelkey at 947-7384, Ext. 5728.
