(CNN) -- Seven people were shot and critically wounded Sunday at a Unitarian church in Knoxville, Tennessee, authorities said.
Police have arrested a suspect in the attack, which occurred about 10 a.m. ET at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church, said Capt. Brent Seymour, a Knoxville Fire Department spokesman.
According to church members, children from the congregation's summer theater workshop were preforming the musical "Annie" when the gunman opened fire, WVLT reported.
The seven gunshot victims were taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center -- located just across the Tennessee River from the church -- Seymour said. About 12 others were treated for minor injuries at the church, he said.
