The officer was not dressed in a police uniform but wore a tactical vest, police said. He was in a car in the church parking lot when he noticed a man looking in his direction from the street.

The man pulled out a gun and shot in the direction of the officer, who sped away.

Several bullets struck the officer’s vehicle, but he was not hurt.

The shooter fled in a silver car.
