A shooting Sunday at a church in Laguna Woods, California, killed one and critically injured four, according to the sheriff's department.

Orange County Sheriff's Department: "All victims are adults en route to the hospital."

Only one victim at the scene." The tweet says another person was injured.

According to Presbytery leader Tom Cramer, the shooting occurred during a lunch reception honouring a former pastor of a Taiwanese congregation that uses the Geneva Presbyterian Church.

Undersheriff Jeff Hallock of Orange County said police have a suspect in custody. Hallock says he's a non-local Asian man in his 60s.

Investigators are looking into his connections to the church or its members, the sheriff's department said.

For interfering or intervening to stop the suspect, Hallock said the churchgoers showed "exceptional heroism."
