PHOENIX, AZ - Police say one priest was shot and killed and another was wounded in an attack at a Catholic church in downtown Phoenix.

Sgt. Steve Martos says police received a call about a burglary at the Mother of Mercy Mission near the state Capitol shortly after 9 p.m. Wednesday. He says responding officers found two priests badly injured.

Martos says one of the priests had been shot and died at the hospital. He says the other priest is hospitalized in critical condition with unspecified injuries. It's not clear if he had been shot.

Martos says police found a car they were seeking in connection with the attack. He says the car was empty when it was located about four blocks north of the church.

Martos says no arrests have been made.
