(NECN: Wichita, Kan.) - Dr. George Tiller, one of the nation's few providers of late-term abortions, was shot and killed Sunday in the foyer of a church where he was serving as an usher. The gunman fled the scene, but a suspect was arrested about 170 miles from the church in suburban Kansas City three hours after the shooting. "He's in custody at this time. He is en route back to Wichita," Wichita Deputy Police Chief Tom Stolz said. "At this particular time, we believe at the end of the day we will book him for one charge of murder and two counts of aggravated assault on two other adult males who were at the church, who he threatened and pointed a gun at." The suspect, 51, allegedly shot Tiller in the foyer of Reformation Lutheran Church. Tiller has been the target of anti-abortion protests since 1991. "At this time, we feel that this is an act of an isolated individual; however, this investigation continues," Stolz said. Stolz said that he hoped to have criminal charges presented to the district attorney's office on Monday. <i>Material from The Associated Press used in this report.</i>
