Police in Idaho were searching Monday for a gunman who shot and wounded a pastor outside his church Sunday afternoon, one day after he led a prayer at a rally for Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz.
Tim Remington was found with multiple gunshot wounds outside the Altar Church in Coeur d’Alene at around 2 p.m. local time Sunday. Remington’s nephew Matthew and other church members told KREM that Remington was shot four times in the back as he walked to his car.
KREM reported that Remington was expected to make a full recovery.
On Saturday, Remington led a prayer at a rally for the Texas senator at a local fairgrounds. Idaho holds its Republican presidential primary Tuesday.
“Our prayers are with Pastor Tim, his family, and the doctors who are supervising his care,” Cruz campaign spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told NBC News. “We pray for his full recovery and are thankful for the efforts of law enforcement to ensure the attacker is swiftly brought to justice.”
Late Sunday, police identified the shooting suspect as 30-year-old Kyle Odom. KHQ, citing witnesses, reported that Odom attended Sunday services at the church, then waited in a car for Remington to leave the building before opening fire.
