Another local crime story made it onto the networks' news agenda. Last week saw nine dead in an Omaha department store grab headlines; now five fatalities in Colorado are deemed worthy of attention: two at the Youth With a Mission seminary in Arvada Colo; three, including the accused killer himself, at a megachurch in Colorado Springs. NBC's Leanne Gregg reported that the gunman, 24-year-old Matthew Murray, had been "thrown out of the missionary group in Arvada three years ago." ABC's Miguel Marquez related how Murray advanced on the new Life Church, which has ties to the missionary training camp, during Sunday services with "an assault rifle, two handguns, smoke grenades and 1,000 rounds of ammo." He was confronted by a congregant "with a background in law enforcement" who had volunteered to serve as a security guard at the church entrance. "She is a real hero," praised New Life pastor Brady Boyd.
