A gunman burst into the residence hall of the Youth With a Mission center in Arvada, Colorado, outside of Denver and shot four missionaries in training. Tiffany Johnson, 26, of Minnesota and Philip Krouse, 24, of Alaska, have died. Dan Griebenow,24, of South Dakota, is in critical but stable condition with a bullet in his neck. The fourth victim, Charlie Blanch, 22, had bullet wounds to a leg.

The shootings occurred just after midnight as a Christmas banquet was ending. The gunman fled the scene and a manhunt is underway. The gunman was described as a white man, about 20 years old. He was wearing a white coat, and he may have facial hair and may have been wearing a dark beanie-style hat. No motive has been identified for the shooting yet.

Update: News reports are now describing the suspect wearing a dark jacket.
