News That’s Haggard’s Old Place, Right?

Another fucked up shooting Colorado today…
A gunman opened fire in the parking lot of a Colorado Springs church today, hitting four people, the church’s pastor said.
The conditions of the people shot outside the New Life Church were not known, El Paso County Sheriff’s Lt. Lari Sevene said.
Lance Coles, a pastor at New Life Church, told The Associated Press he received a report that a man was shooting at people in the church parking lot and that the gunman may have entered the church shortly after 1 p.m. Police believe the shooter may be “down” inside the church’s main sanctuary….
Why yes it is…
It was not immediately known whether the shootings were related to an earlier shooting about 70 miles away in Arvada. There, two people died and two were wounded early today when a gunman opened fire in a dormitory at a missionary training center on the campus of Faith Bible Chapel.
New Life was founded by the Rev. Ted Haggard, who was fired last year after a former male prostitute alleged he had a three-year cash-for-sex relationship with him.
I wonder if New Life will ever make the news without Haggard’s fall from grace earning a mention. Here’s hoping there were no fatalities and the gunman, if he’s “down,” only succeeded in offing himself.
