An investigation is under way after authorities say a lay bishop at a Mormon church in Central California was fatally shot in his office during a break between scheduled Sunday services.

Police say Clay Sannar was shot at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Visalia, southeast of Fresno.

Minutes later, a caller identified himself to police as the shooter. Police say they responded, and an officer shot the suspect.

The suspect's condition wasn't immediately released.

Visalia police say they've handed over the investigation to Tulare County sheriff's deputies because of the officer's involvement.

The website of a fertilizer company called Soil Basics identifies Sannar as the general manager.

Church officials say he had six children.
