Another church shooting

This time, in Phoenix.

There's a lot of confusion about what happened this morning outside Cathedral Christian Center in Glendale, Arizona. Initial reports say a woman was shot in the head after "trading kids" with the suspect, who left the scene. The church houses a preschool.

"According to investigators, the woman's estranged husband may be the shooter," KPNX reports. "They believe he also took the woman's two children after the shooting. The 4-year-old child was later dropped off at John C. Lincoln Hospital. It's unclear if that child was injured. The 3-year-old has been left at a house in Surprise and is safe."

KTVK, KPHO, and KNXV also have reports.

Update: Daniel Parasca has reportedly committed suicide. The victim, Gabriela Parasca, was his wife, who had a restraining order against him. Their 4-year-old daughter was injured in the earlier shooting at Cathedral Christian Center.
