DAYTON, OH - An Ohio pastor is dead after being shot inside his church during a Sunday morning service.

Dayton police say William Schooler had just walked back to the pulpit inside Zion Baptist Church when the shooter got out of a pew and followed him.

Witnesses say they heard a couple of shots fired while the choir was singing, and it quickly became chaos when everyone took off running.

Police say more than 20 people were inside the church at the time.

The shooter is believed to be Schooler's brother and police are investigating a possible motive.

An autopsy will be performed on Monday.
