PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix priest is expected to make a full recovery after he was badly beaten in an attack that killed another clergyman at a Roman Catholic church in downtown Phoenix.

Church officials said after a Sunday morning Mass that the Rev. Joseph Terra was moved out of a hospital intensive care unit the night before but will need time to recuperate after the Wednesday night attack.

The Rev. Carl Gismondi, a pastor from San Diego who led the service, says Terra is in good spirits.

More than 100 parishioners at Mother of Mercy Mission gathered to mourn the Rev. Kenneth Walker, who was shot to death.

Police are searching for a suspect described as a white male between the ages of 40 and 49 years old.
