This from The Denver Post:

Deadly attacks at mission, church may be linked

Four people and a gunman died in the attacks Sunday at a megachurch in Colorado Springs and at the Youth With a Mission missionary center in the town of Arvada. Five others were wounded.

Police in Arvada said they believed the shootings — which occurred 12 hours and about 65 miles apart — were probably linked, though they had nothing conclusive to back up the theory.

“Given the circumstances, I think it is a good possibility that the two are linked,” Arvada Deputy Police Chief Gary Creagor told The Associated Press early Monday. “But we have to prove that they are.”
