    Visalia, CA LDS (Mormon) Bishop gunned down in between services

    What kind of cowardly, sick and crazed individual does this? Suicide by Cop. This is appalling. This Bishop had six kids ranging in age from 3 months to 14 years. All boys. My heart goes out to the Bishop Clay Sannar's family, The Visalia LDS Wards and to the officer(s) at the Visalia PD that were involved in the shooting. Nobody in their right mind wants to kill anyone, but sometimes it is necessary.

    UPDATE: Church-shooting victim identified as Lay Bishop Clay Sannar; suspected shooter not yet named | visaliatimesdelta.com | Visalia Times-Delta and Tulare Advance-Register-

    The church official killed today in a shooting at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Visalia’s Tulare Avenue has been identified as Lay Bishop Clay Sannar, 42.

    Sannar was the father of six, the youngest of whom is just months old, police said.

    The shooting took place at 12:30 p.m. at the 825 W. Tulare Avenue church. The man suspected of shooting Sannar was shot blocks away by Visalia Police Department officers.

    The suspect’s name and condition have not been released.

    A church spokesman said no one at the church recognized the shooter. The spokesman, Ralph Jordan, said the shooter did not ask for Sannar by name but instead asked for “the president or the bishop.”

    The suspect was shot at Divisadero Street and Burrel Avenue. A Tulare County Coroner's Office vehicle is at the scene.

    The lay bishop killed in today’s shooting at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints near Mt. Whitney High School was shot in his office during a break between scheduled Sunday services, officials said.

    Several people were in the area, police said, but it’s unknown whether there are eyewitnesses to the 12:30 p.m. shooting of Clay Sannar. The first service at the 825 W. Tulare Avenue church ended at noon and the second was scheduled to begin at 1 p.m., church officials said.

    The suspected shooter was shot by police minutes later at Divisadero Street and Burrel Avenue. The suspect’s condition has not been released, but a Tulare County Coroner’s Office vehicle is at the scene.
