The man accused of carrying out a mass shooting at a Church in California was subdued by parishioners, authorities said.

During a press conference Sunday, officials said the alleged shooter, an Asian man, was hog-tied with an electrical cord when officers arrived at Geneva Presbyterian Church in Laguna Hills.

The man shot six people before he was apprehended, authorities said. One of the victims died, four were critically wounded and one other suffered minor injuries, officials stated.

A weapon was recovered, but police said investigators had not determined a motive.

Laguna Hills is about 50 miles south of Los Angeles.
