Associated Press Updated: June 13, 2014 at 9:31 am

PHOENIX (AP) — Police have released a brief description of the man suspected of entering a Roman Catholic church in downtown Phoenix, fatally shooting one priest and critically injuring another.

Phoenix police said Friday they are looking for a white male between the ages of 40 and 49 years old.

Sgt. Steve Martos says investigators obtained the description after interviewing the Rev. Joseph Terra, who is hospitalized in critical condition with unspecified wounds.

Martos says police are still unsure if there was only one suspect involved.

Terra called 911 on Wednesday night to report a burglary. Responding officers found Terra and the Rev. Kenneth Walker severely injured. Walker later died at a hospital.

Police are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
