Timothy David Swift, 33, of Harrison was taken into custody on charges of terroristic act and possession of narcotics, according to the Boone County sheriff’s office.

Authorities responded around 7:30 p.m. Thursday to the Pentecostal Tabernacle at 909 E. Washington Ave. in Harrison in reference to shots fired.

The church was struck multiple times while members were present, the sheriff’s office said. It was not immediately clear how any people were inside at the time.
