Terrible
UPDATE: , in critical condition. Fr. Walker, FSSP, dead. RIP.

Fr. Walker is a young priest who celebrated his first Mass in June 2012, and Fr. Terra is 56.

It looks like the robbers stole their car.
Do we know if this was just a burglary gone very bad, or could it be religiously instigated?

It's too hard to tell at this point.

I attend this parish when in the Phoenix area (Fr. Terra there married my wife and I), and I know that they were having security issues in the past, such that they did a fundraiser to build a garage to house their cars more safely.

I wonder if trad priests have had this problem before? Their churches are (unfortunately) usually in the the worst parts of town.

This is nothing new. Fr Coyne was killed in cold blood after he married the daughter of a Ku Klux Klan leader. The Ku Klux Klan leader was acquitted. 
That we may be faithful to the Gospel in our time of trial.
