PHILADELPHIA (AP) -

Authorities say an altercation between two members of a suburban Philadelphia church during a Sunday worship service ended with one shooting and killing the other.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said the altercation escalated from "a disturbance" at evangelistic Bible-teaching church Keystone Fellowship Church in North Wales.

Police were called shortly before 11:30 a.m. Sunday and found 27-year-old Robert Braxton, of Montgomeryville, with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was rushed to Abington Lansdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after noon. An autopsy is scheduled Monday.

Steele said the other man involved was cooperating with police but that he's not in custody at this point. He had been treated at a hospital and released.

The church issued a statement saying officials were "saddened" by the shooting.
