Published: Updated:

A gunman opened fire on Saturday at a church holding a funeral in a small town in New Hampshire, injuring several people before being taken into custody, police said.

A police official in the northeast state told AFP she did not know how many people were hurt or the motive of the shooting.

The attack happened at New England Pentacostal Church, a squat white building in the town of 15,000 in the far south of the largely rural state.

The police official said she did know how the shooter was taken into custody.

Also on Saturday, at least four people died in a shooting at a private social club in New York, US media reported.
