HOLLIDAYSBURG, Blair County — A man fatally shot a woman decorating for a children’s Christmas party at a tiny church hall and killed two men elsewhere in a rural central Pennsylvania township Friday before he was fatally shot in a gunfight with state troopers.

The woman had cooked food the day before for the funeral of Juniata Valley Gospel Church’s longtime pastor, said the Rev. James McCaulley, his brother.  The central Pennsylvania church was still reeling Friday from the Rev. David McCaulley’s death when the woman returned to decorate the church hall — named after the pastor of 58 years — and bullets ripped through a window, he said.

The gunman then entered and shot one of two women before he left, the Rev. James McCaulley said.

Blair County District Attorney Richard Consiglio said that there “might be some relation” between at least two of the victims but that they were shot at different places in and around the tiny village in Geeseytown, about 70 miles west of Harrisburg.  The names of the victims and the gunman weren’t immediately released.
