Chesapeake Police are searching for the man who killed one Mormon missionary and wounded another Monday after 6 p.m.

Police say the two missionaries had been going door-to-door Monday evening, and may have witnessed another crime before they were shot. Police say the two missionaries were not victims of a hate crime.

Morgan Winslow Young, 21, of Bountiful, Utah, died Monday from the gunshot wounds he received.

The second victim Joshua Heidbrink, 19, of Greeley, CO is in good condition. Heidbrink remains hospitalized.

Police say one of the victims ran to a nearby nursing home for help.

A spokesman for the Mormon church says the shooting will not change the work of church missionaries worldwide.

"They just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, doing the right thing," said James Russell, spokesman for the church, also known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Russell said 55,000 Mormon missionaries are serving worldwide now.

Investigators do not have a suspect, and are asking that anyone with information call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

Young was a graduate of Bountiful High School, where he excelled in computer science. He had spent nearly two years in Virginia on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was due to return home in March and planned to study computer science at Brigham Young University.
