Motive Sought in Wisconsin Church Shootings

Police are still searching for a motive in the Wisconsin church shooting over the weekend. Terry Ratzman, a member of the Living God Church, walked in during Saturday's sermon and opened fire, killing seven, then himself. Investigators speculate that Ratzman was angry about the content of the pastor's oration, which was known for its apocalyptic message. Chuck Quirmbach of Wisconsin Public Radio reports.
