Two people were shot and killed at a missionary training center outside of Denver and one was killed at a church in Colorado Springs, Colo.

According to USA Today, shortly after midnight a man shot two people at the Youth With a Mission missionary training center in Arvada. The man wanted to stay the night, but was denied according to Arvada Chief Don Wick. Twelve hours later, around 1 p.m., a lone gunman walked into a New Life Church in Colorado Springs and killed one person before a security guard killed him, according to Colorado Spring police.

One of the victims was from Minnesota, according to the AP story on the Star Tribune Web site. Tiffany Johnson, 26, was from Chisholm, Minn and was the director of hospitality at the Youth With a Mission training center. Another Minnesotan was wounded in the shooting, Charles Blanch, 22, of Burnsville, Minn. Police are investigating whether or not the shootings were connected, according to both reports.
