Utah man shot in Catholic Mass expected to survive

OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Doctors say a Utah man shot in the head by his son-in-law during a Father's Day Catholic Mass is expected to survive.

Dr. Barbara Kerwin of McDay-Dee Hospital in Ogden says James Evans is in critical condition but expected to live. She says the bullet went through his ear and out his cheek, missing the brain.

Police say 35-year-old Charles Richard Jennings Jr. walked into Mass hand-in-hand with his wife, Evans' daughter. Authorities say Jennings went up to Evans and shot him near the back of the Saint James the Just Catholic Church in Ogden.

Jennings was captured Sunday afternoon after fleeing in a stolen pickup truck.

The Rev. Eric Richtseig says Jennings had previously made threats.
