One person is dead following a shooting at a Fallon church and a second has a leg injury, Fallon Police Chief Kevin Gehman said Sunday.

At a grim press conference attended by Gehman and Fallon Mayor Ken Tedford and other officials, some of the details of the shooting at Mormon church at 750 W. Richards St. were revealed.

Gehman said John O’Connor walked into the church just before 1 p.m. and fired shots, then left the church and walked home. O'Connor surrendered after authorities called the home and asked him to surrender.
