WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The senior pastor of the Wichita church where late-term abortion provider George Tiller was killed has said Reformation Lutheran Church is bringing in crisis counselors to
help members.

The Rev. Lowell Michelson said Tuesday that crisis intervention experts will help people work through their emotions. They will be
available for group and individual counseling.

Scott Roeder faces first-degree murder and aggravated assault charges in Sunday's shooting death. Tiller was ushering at the church when he was killed in the church foyer.

Michelson says he has prayed for Roeder.

He also says the church has received an outpouring of support from around the world.
