OGDEN, Utah_A Utah gunman is in jail tonight, accused of shooting his own stepfather in the back of the head while in church.

Police said as churchgoers gathered for morning mass in a town just 40 minutes north of Salt Lake City, a single gunshot rang out inside the Catholic Church hitting the victim. Church members ran after the gunman who then held a second man at gunpoint in the church's parking lot.

He stole the man's pickup and disappeared for hours.

Police later tracked down the suspect identified as Charles Jennings Jr. The victim has been listed in critical but stable condition. A motive has not been released.
