Priest killed in robbery

Police say one priest was shot and killed and another was wounded in an attack at a Catholic church in the U.S.

Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos says officers received a call about a burglary at the Mother of Mercy Mission on Wednesday night. He says responding officers found two priests badly injured.

Martos says one priest had been shot and died at the hospital. He says the other priest is hospitalized in critical condition with unspecified injuries. It's not clear if he had been shot.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix has identified the slain priest as the Rev. Kenneth Walker and the injured priest as the Rev. Joseph Terra.

Martos says no arrests have been made.
