Dayton, OH

A pastor was shot and killed inside his Dayton, Ohio church on Sunday during choir practices.

William Schooler, 70, was shot and killed inside at the St. Peter’s Missionary Baptist Church.

Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies say that the pastor’s brother; 68-year-old Daniel Gregory Schooler was the shooter. The younger Schooler was arrested and charged with murder.

Witnesses report that the church choir had just stopped singing when the pastor began to walk up to the pulpit. This is when the pastor was shot by his brother.

The church quickly emptied with no one else being shot at.

Pastor Schooler was later pronounced dead.

At this time it is unclear what prompted Daniel to shot and kill his brother. Family members have come out and said that Daniel had suffered from mental issues.

Daniel has been arrested multiple times for assault and attacking others.
