Mormon Bishop Clay Sannar Shot (PHOTO)

Mormon Bishop Clay Sannar, 42, was working at the church Sunday when a man approached him and shot him. Any links to a photo of Clay Sannar?
Witnesses said the man walked into the LDS church building in California visibly upset about something and asked to speak to a church leader. When Bishop Clay Sannar approached him he pulled a gun and shot him.

Why did this man shot Bishop Clay Sannar? What was his motivation to just get into the church and shoot him? Did this man know Bishop Clay Sannar?

Detectives say the suspect then took off, leaving behind a congregation shocked and saddened over the loss of their bishop.

The name of the man who shot the bishop is Kenneth James Ward, 47, he was killed in a shootout with police.

Ward's brother told the Visalia-Times Delta that his brother was mentally ill and felt wronged by a bishop in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints back when he was a member in the 1980s.

Obviously the guy who killed bishop Clay Sannar was out of his mind.
Shortly after the shooting, he phoned the police and told them where he was headed. He clearly felt guilt.
I think he is still alive. RIP Clay Sannar.

I'm sorry but the ones out of their mind are the ones that didn't do something when he made the threats.
