I'm Sarah Verser with Good Day Alabama. Hope you had a great weekend.  Here's what we are talking about this Monday Morning:

A shocking story out of Selma. Three people are recovering and one man is in custody after a shooting at a church. The suspect is James Junior Minter.  Police say he shot and injured his girlfriend and their newborn baby during a service at the Oasis Tabernacle Church yesterday.
A pastor tried to wrestle a gun from him, but Minter shot him in the leg. All three victims are expected to be recover. Minter is facing three counts of attempted murder. Police say his motive may have been an ongoing dispute over child visitation.

Clare Huddleston is covering the Sentencing hearing in the child sex abuse case in Calhoun County.Convicted abuser Emanuel Yarbrough of Oxford, had been charged with first-degree sodomy and first-degree sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12, and was convicted on both counts.
