BANGOR, Maine — Police are searching for the person they say shot a man outside of a Bangor church Sunday.

It happened around 3 a.m., in the parking lot of the Rock Church at 1195 Ohio St.

According to the Bangor Police Department, the man who was shot was taken to the hospital for his injuries but is now recovering at home.

The church's pastor, Kirk Winters, said he's never experienced anything like this at his church. He said he received a call from police because they are trying to use the building's video to help with their investigation. 

The church was not open at the time of the shooting.

Bangor police said they are investigating and ask anyone with information to contact them.
