COLUMBUS, Ohio — Two people were injured after a shooting near the Columbus Ohio Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Tuesday afternoon around 3:45 p.m. MST. A suspect is in custody.
According to NBC4, Soth Sin, 33, and Neng Sith, 52, were in a 2010 Toyota Corolla in the temple parking lot when Sokkha Chant, 65, approached the car and confronted the couple.
As Chant approached, Sith fled from the vehicle. According to police, Chant then entered the car and shot Sin and then himself.
According to KSL, “Sin and Chant are apparently husband and wife.” Police said there has been a prior domestic incident involving the couple.
Sin and Chant were transported to area hospitals for medical help in critical but stable conditions, according to police.
Local officials said the shooting had nothing to do with the temple, its attendees or the LDS church, according to 10TV.com, the WBNS website.
