Extra seating at Salmon Arm's Church of Christ on Sunday.

This weekend marked the first service inside the Church since a fatal shooting back on April 14th.

Preaching Minister Doug Kendig says they had a few extra people in attendance "We usually would run between 30-40 people, and we were closer to 50."

He says that a few people were a bit uncomfortable, but most were pleased to be back "Most people were just very happy to get back into their own building. We had several visitors come and we had to find extra chairs for everybody."

Elder Gordon Parmenter died in the shooting, and another man was injured.

The accused in the shooting continues to make his way through the courts.
