The gun and car that investigators suspect were used in the March 6 shooting of a Coeur d’Alene church pastor are in police custody.
Two detectives from the Coeur d’Alene Police Department found the firearm Thursday during a search of the car that suspect Kyle Andrew Odom is believed to have driven from the scene of the shooting at Altar Church to Boise before boarding a commercial airliner March 7 to travel to Washington, D.C.
Odom, 30, was arrested outside the White House and is in jail in Washington awaiting an extradition hearing next month. He faces a charge of attempted murder for allegedly shooting senior pastor Tim Remington, who is recovering at Kootenai Health.
The detectives returned from Boise last week with the gun and car, Coeur d’Alene police spokesman Det. Jared Reneau said.
