Can't find this article nowhere now. I'm guessing you have it?

I searched on CNN's site, and the only result I got was a news about CAN
("Group that once criticized Scientologists now owned by one"), and two
sponsored results by Scientology:

Four shot at Oregon Scientology center

PORTLAND, Oregon (CNN) -- A man carried a gun and a can of gasoline into a
downtown Church of Scientology on Wednesday, shot four people and started a
fire, police said.

The suspect, identified as Kenya native Jairus Godeka, 38, surrendered after
walking out of the church's Portland Celebrity Center with a female hostage
whom he released unharmed. Godeka was promptly arrested, and firefighters
quickly doused the flames.

A pregnant woman was hospitalized in critical condition with gunshots to her
shoulder and abdomen. Two men were in serious condition and a fourth victim
was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the hip.

Police said Godeka had previous run-ins with the church. It was not clear if
he was or is a member.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Later reports confirmed that he was a member for several years, along with
spin and perjury from Moxon and others claiming that he'd just bought a
book. And, damnit, the baby was fine!
