The mother of a Colorado pastor was shot dead on Sunday afternoon during church service, CBS Denver reports.

The shooting took place outside of New Destiny Christian Center just as service was ending. CBS Denver has more:

Police said two vehicles ended up in the church parking lot after some sort of argument between the drivers. Police said one vehicle was chasing the other. The man who was being chased got out of his vehicle and entered the church and told people to take cover. A woman came out of the church to see what was happening in the parking lot and got shot.

The woman who was shot and died of her injures was Josephine Echols, mother of New Destiny’s pastor, De Lono Straham. The shooter was shot dead by an off-duty cop who is also a cousin of the pastor, according to the report.
