At least four people were stabbed at an in-home church service in Texas on Wednesday night, police said.

Corpus Christi police Lt. Jay Clement said a pastor, a band member along with two others were stabbed, according to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

Clement said the pastor was found with a stab wound to the chest and the band member had a stab wound to the neck. Clement said both were taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Clement said two others received were stabbed while trying to get away from the attacker. One was stabbed in the hand and another person was stabbed in the arm, he said.

Police said a man was in custody and was facing four counts of aggravated assault, according to the Caller-Times. Clement said the man’s motive was unknown and witnesses told him that he had been a parishioner for a long time and it was unclear why he would attack other parishioners.

Police said about a dozen people may have been on the property for the non-denominational church service. Police did not identify the church, but KRIS-TV reported that the address of the home matched up with Kingdom Acts Ministries International.
