Suspect in custody after shooting at New Hampshire church

"Responding officers arrived within three minutes of the call", Roark said during a press conference Saturday afternoon.

The perpetrator was subdued after some of the 40 wedding attendees tackled him to the ground.

Police said the shooting did not appear to be random, but would not confirm if the gunman knew the victims. It's unknown if they were part of the ceremony or guests at the wedding. Police said the shooter arrived at the scene after the wedding began. "While this remains a very active scene, the State of New Hampshire will provide all necessary resources to support the community and our local partners".

Several police, fire and ambulance crews could be seen outside the New England Pentecostal Ministries, a simple white one-story structure in Pelham, a town about 30 miles (48 km) north of Boston. The suspect was in custody.

The number of people injured is unknown.

Pelham is about 40 miles south of Concord, New Hampshire's capital, on the border with MA.

A celebration of life for former minister Luis Garcia was scheduled to take place at the church at noon. The newspaper said that the Castiglione and Garcia families were known to each other through the church. A man has been charged with his death and is serving time in jail.

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu confirmed the shooting investigation and that law enforcement was on the scene.

There have been no reported fatalities and few details on injuries.

A suspect has been arrested in the shooting at the New England Pentecostal Church, Roark said.
