Man stabs 4 people at church in Albuquerque

Posted: Updated:

Police say a man stabbed four people at a Catholic church in Albuquerque as a Sunday mass was nearing its end.
    
Police spokesman Robert Gibbs says a man in his 20s jumped over several pews at St. Jude's Church around noon on Sunday and walked up to the choir area where he began his attack.
    
The injuries to the four church-goers weren't life-threatening. All four were being treated at hospitals.
    
Numerous parishioners subdued the attacker and held him down until police arrived.
    
Gibbs says the attacker is in custody but that police don't yet know his identity, the motive for the stabbings, whether he had any ties to the victims or whether he regularly attended the church.
    
The stabbings occurred as the choir had just begun its closing hymns.
