2nd Victim Dies in Tennessee Church Shooting

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee city official says a second
victim has died from injuries suffered in a shooting at a church
youth performance.

Knoxville spokesman Randall Kenner says 61-year-old Linda
Kraeger died at University of Tennessee Medical Center on Sunday,
several hours after the shooting. Sixty-year-old Greg McKendry died
earlier in the day.

Fifty-eight-year-old Jim Adkisson is in custody and charged with first-degree murder in the shootings that also left seven injured.

Members of the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church were watching a children's performance when the shooting broke out. No children were injured.
