EAST SELMA, Alabama (AP):

An Alabama prosecutor says a suspect has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting a woman, an infant, and a pastor inside a church in Alabama.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson said James Minter was arrested after the shooting yesterday at the Oasis Church in East Selma, Alabama. Neither Minter's age or hometown were immediately available.

Jackson explained the shooting stems from a domestic issue between Minter and the woman, and that race was not a factor.

Jackson said the pastor is white, while Minter and the two other victims are black. He added that Minter is being held without bond at the Dallas County jail.
