LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Three people were killed and two were wounded in a late-night sniper attack in the town of Moscow, Idaho, KREM-TV said on Sunday.

Moscow Police Sgt. Lee Newbill was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital following the shooting attack that started outside the Latah County Courthouse on Saturday. A civilian and another police officer were also injured in that attack and remain hospitalized, KREM said on its Web site.

The shooter took cover in a Presbyterian church following the rampage.

Police later raided the church and found the bodies of two men, including the presumed gunman.

An automatic rifle was found next to one of the bodies, leading police to believe that one of the bodies belonged to the gunman.

A Moscow Police representative was not immediately available to comment.

Moscow is located in northern Idaho near the border with the state of Washington.
