    Five dead in US church shooting

    A gunman has opened fire at a church in the city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, killing four people, reports from the US say.

    The man then abducted his wife and one of his children and fled the church, police said. The woman was later found shot dead. The child was unharmed.

    The suspect was later seized near the church, the AP news agency said.

    The incident happened during the morning church service. The motive of the shooting was not immediately known.

    It took place in the Jesus Christ Church in the northern part of the city, according to WDSU-TV.

    The suspect - identified as Anthony Bell, 25, - fled the church in a car and was later captured at a nearby apartment complex, police said.

    His wife - whose name was not immediately released - was found shot dead there.

    The couple's two other children were found safe at home.
