Police: Pastor’s shooting planned

The shooting of an Idaho pastor in his church was “a pre-planned attack,” authorities said Monday, but they are still searching for a motive.

Tim Remington was found by police at 2 p.m. in the parking lot of the Altar Church in Coeur d’Alene with multiple gunshot wounds, said Detective Jared Reneau of the Coeur d’Alene Police Department. Remington is expected to make a full recovery,

Police named Kyle Andrew Odom, 30, as a suspect in the shooting. “I will tell you that some details surrounding Mr. Odom’s planning are disturbing,” Lee White, the Couer d’Alene Police Department chief, said a news conference Monday.

White said authorities have not yet found any connection between the suspect and the church. The incident was caught on security camers.

Remington delivered the invocation at a rally for Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz on Saturday, but police say they have not found any information suggesting the shooting was politically motivated.
