It happened around 3 a.m. local time, according to reports. Police hostage negotiators were still on the scene hours later.

The Associated Press described the church as long-troubled.

Police arrested 40 individuals. Six people have been injured.

Police say children were among those rescued. They say the attack by a group of armed people “may have been motivated by a feud” between church members.

More than 25 firearms have been seized, according to Reuters.
