SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — San Antonio Police have arrested two people after a man brought a gun into a church.

It was during the 8 A.M. Mass at St. Timothy Catholic Church on Saltillo Street.

A young man got out of a van and walked into the foyer.

It was then that he did the sign of the cross and made some gestures that indicated he had a weapon.

Two other people in the foyer saw the man and alerted parishioners who then fled the building.

The man did as well. He jumped back in the van and pointed his gun at the church before driving away.

Police were able to locate the van and arrested the two people who were in the vehicle.

Their names haven’t been released and there’s been no update on what the pair will be charged with.

The Archdiocese of San Antonio released a statement that security was present at the church for the 10 A.M. and 12 P.M. services.

“Gratitude and prayers are offered for the quick thinking individuals and law enforcement that this situation was resolved in a peaceful manner with no harm. The security and safety of our parishioners and church personnel is paramount for the archdiocese.”
