Idaho Pastor Who Spoke at Ted Cruz Rally Shot and Injured
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho pastor who gave the invocation at a weekend campaign rally for GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz was shot and injured outside his church the next day.
Officials say Pastor Tim Remington was shot as many as six times, including in the head and lung, but is expected to pull through. Altar Church outreach Pastor John Padula spoke with Remington's doctors and says the 55-year-old Remington is doing well.
Police say they have identified and are searching for a suspect but don't yet know of a motive.
Remington was shot just before 2 p.m. Sunday, the day after praying with Cruz in Coeur d'Alene.
Padula says Remington has been threatened several times by drug addicts he tried to help through his faith-based recovery program.
