Minister wounded in shooting outside San Diego church

San Diego police are investigating a Sunday night shooting in the parking lot outside a church that left a minister wounded.

Two ministers from the Greater Apostolic Faith Temple Church were sitting in a car when a gunman described as a man in his 20s walked up to the car and opened fire, police said.

A bullet grazed one minister's chest and lodged in his arm. He was taken to the hospital with what police called a non-life threatening wound. The second minister was unharmed.

The shooter, wearing a black baseball cap and black clothing, was last seen running away, police said.

Names of the ministers were not released. No motive for the incident was revealed.

Founded in 1925, the Greater Apostolic Faith Temple Church serves a congregation in the Barrio Logan and Sherman Heights neighborhoods.
