Summary of attack on Phoenix priests
#1
June 11, 2014, at about 9:11 PM MST, two priests were assaulted in an armed robbery of the rectory of Mater Misericordiæ Mission, Phoenix, AZ. Fr. Kenneth Walker, FSSP, was shot multiple times and died, and Fr. Joseph Terra, FSSP, was brutally beaten but survived. He gave Fr. Walker the Last Rites. A local traditional diocesan priest, Fr. Saenz, gave Fr. Walker the Apostolic Blessing in the hospital, where he died; he also gave Fr. Terra the Last Rites.

There's one rumor going around saying that Fr. Walker chased the assailant, but this cannot be inferred from the 911 call.

Fr. Flood, FSSP, district superior, and Bp. Olmsted speak about it: http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/story/257746...est-attack
