Two dead after gunman opens fire in church during ‘Boomers potluck’

The Metro says a gunman opened fire inside a suburban Alabama church yesterday evening, killing two people and wounding a third.

The attack was carried out at around 6.20pm during a small group meeting at Saint Stephen’s Episcopal Church in the Birmingham suburb of Vestavia Hills.

Investigators declined to identify the victims or the suspect, who police managed to take in alive.

No further details were released on the attack, but a press briefing is expected to be held later today.

The church’s website listed a ‘Boomers Potluck’ for Thursday night, scheduled between 5pm and 7pm.

Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
