The pastor of a prominent Idaho church was shot and critically wounded in the church’s parking lot Sunday, NBC News reported,
Tim Remington, 55, was shot just a day after he delivered the invocation at a campaign rally for Republican candidate Ted Cruz.
Remington is the senior pastor of the nondenominational Altar Church in Couer d’Alene. He was in critical condition late Sunday afternoon. Police told NBC station KHQ they found a man with several gunshot wounds. The gunman — described as a little taller than six feet, with short, curly blond hair — fled and remains at large.
"Our prayers are with Pastor Tim, his family, and the doctors who are supervising his care," Catherine Frazier, a spokeswoman for Cruz's campaign, told NBC News. "We pray for his full recovery and are thankful for the efforts of law enforcement to ensure the attacker is swiftly brought to justice."
