Just minutes after 1:00 p.m. a rescue squad was called to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church at 32nd Ave. and Ed Creighton Ave. where a man was found down inside the church.
Radio calls from dispatchers to crews enroute said a gun was found next to the victim.
The man was taken to Creighton University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
There were no church services going on at the time. There is an elementary school attached to the church but classes were not in session Monday.
Police at 3:00 p.m. were still conducting their investigation. The man's name had not been released.
The man was not a member of the parish staff.
