ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Neighbors and the pastor of St. Jude Thaddeus Church are giving some insight into the man accused of stabbing four people at the northwest Albuquerque church on Sunday.

Lawrence Capener, 24, was arrested at the church Sunday afternoon.

Witnesses say during one of the final hymns, Capener got up from his pew, climbing over several other people and pews, then stabbing multiple members of the church choir.

St. Jude Thaddeus’ pastor Father John Daniel said the Capener and his mother were “very active” in the parish and that the suspect’s mother Shirley Capener is a Eucharistic minister there.
