RIPLEY, Miss. (WREG) -- An altercation involving a local government official turned deadly as a Ripley, Mississippi church congregation gathered Sunday morning.

As the members of West Ripley Church of Christ came to worship, tempers flared during the service, and a man was shot dead inside the church, residents say.

Police have not released details on the shooting but WREG was told the preacher’s son-in-law attacked Constable Keith Bullock during the service, leading Bullock to respond by shooting him.

Bullock just ran unopposed in the primary for Tippah County constable just last week.
