Ohio authorities to discuss charges in pastor’s killing

Authorities plan to discuss what charges to file against a man suspected of shooting his brother, a southwest Ohio pastor, at the pastor’s church as Sunday services were ending.

Dayton police say the Rev. William B. Schooler was shot on Sunday in his office at St. Peter’s Missionary Baptist Church.

The pastor’s brother, 68-year-old Daniel Gregory Schooler, was arrested at the church and taken to the Montgomery County jail.

Dayton police plan to meet with prosecutors on Tuesday to discuss charges against Schooler. Jail records don’t list an attorney for him.

Police say they don’t know what led to the shooting, but say the 70-year-old pastor was the only intended victim.

The brothers’ niece, Joyce Napier, tells the Dayton Daily News that Daniel Schooler has a history of mental illness.
