A suspect in this morning's fatal shooting of George Tiller is in custody in Johnson County.
Authorities have yet to release more information about the arrest in Gardner. Wichita police have scheduled a 4 p.m. news conference to discuss the case.
Tiller, 67, was shot just after 10 a.m. in the lobby of Reformation Lutheran Church at 7601 E. 13th, where he was a member of the congregation.
Tiller was serving as an usher at the church, one of six ushers listed in the church bulletin. He was handing out bulletins to people going into the sanctuary minutes before being shot.
Having long performed late-term abortions, Tiller had been the focus of the anti-abortion movement for years now. In 1993 he was shot at his clinic, the same clinic that was vandalized just two weeks ago. No matter how vehement you may be against abortion, violence should never come into play--no doubt this was the work of a lone nutcase, but that doesn't matter to the Left, who are already exploiting this case to stereotype anti-abortion protesters as lunatics.
Operation Rescue has released a statement denouncing the killing.
