YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Police in Ohio say someone shot an elderly man to death and wounded his wife blocks from a church where an 80-year-old member was murdered earlier this year.
Youngstown police say up to 12 shots were fired at the couple's car on Saturday, killing 75-year-old Thomas Repchic and wounding his 74-year-old wife, Jacqueline. She's expected to recover.
The couple had just left St. Dominic Roman Catholic Church, where Jacqueline Repchic works in the office.
In January, a gunman killed a parishioner in the church parking lot after Mass. A 19-year-old has been charged with murder in that case.
Youngstown Mayor Jay Williams has offered a $10,000 reward for information in the latest attack. He tells The Vindicator newspaper in Youngstown that the shootings are sickening.
