Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) The Pastor of a church where gunman Matthew Murray opened fire and killed two teenage sisters will talk about how the congregation has healed in the year since the shootings.

New Life Church Pastor Brady Boyd is expected to meet with reporters Sunday afternoon, along with security guard Jeanne Assam. Assam shot and wounded Murray, who then killed himself.

Murray began his shooting spree at the Youth with a Mission Center in suburban Arvada just after midnight Dec. 9, where he shot and killed tiffany Johnson, 26, and Philip Crouse, 24.

Hours later he drove 65 miles south to new life church in Colorado Springs and began shooting as worshippers left a Sunday service. Sisters Rachel Works, 16, and Stephanie Works, 18, were killed.
