OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Authorities in Utah plan to offer details about a man accused of walking into a Catholic church and shooting another man in the back of the head during Mass in Ogden.

A family spokesman, police and hospital representatives are expected to speak Monday morning at a news conference about Sunday's shooting.

Witnesses say they heard one gunshot during the 11:30 a.m. Mass at Saint James the Just Catholic Church, and that parishioners immediately hit the floor.

The victim was taken to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, where he was listed in critical but stable condition.

Investigators say 35-year-old Charles Richard Jennings Jr. was captured Sunday afternoon in nearby Box Elder County after fleeing in a stolen pickup truck.

Parishioners say the victim was the gunman's father-in-law.
