We are getting more details on the shooting in a church in Coudersport, Pennsylvania.  According to witness accounts released by the state police, 52 year old Greg Eldred entered the rear door of the First United Presbyterian Church behind the choir and shot his ex-wife, Darlene Sitler, who was seated at the church organ. He then left the building and came back a second time, thinking Sitler had survived. Members of the congregation were able to wrestle the gun from him and tackle him to the ground, but not before another round went off into the pews. He was held there until police arrived. Sitler died from gunshot wounds to the head and chest; the second shot was what took her life. No one else was hurt. Police say the attack was pre-meditated and occured during the church service.
