Utah Man Shot In Catholic Mass Expected To Survive

Posted: Updated:

OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Doctors say a Utah man shot in the head by his son-in-law during a Father's Day Catholic Mass is expected to survive.
    
Dr. Barbara Kerwin of McDay-Dee Hospital in Ogden says James Evans is still in critical condition but expected to live. She says the bullet went through his jaw and cheek, missing the brain.
    
Police say 35-year-old Charles Richard Jennings Jr. walked into Mass hand-in-hand with his wife, Evans' daughter. Authorities say Jennings went up to Evans and shot him near the back of the Saint James the Just Catholic Church in Ogden.
    
Jennings was captured Sunday afternoon after fleeing in a stolen pickup truck.
    
Ogden police don't yet know the motive of the shooting.
    
The Rev. Eric Richsteig says Jennings had previously made threats but didn't elaborate.
