PORTLAND, ORE. PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ A man carried a gun and a can of gasoline into a downtown Church of Scientology on Wednesday, starting a fire and shooting four people, including a pregnant woman.

The suspect surrendered after walking out of the church's Portland Celebrity Centre with a female hostage who was heard shouting: "Don't do anything. He's got a gun to my head." Police talked the man into releasing the woman unharmed and dropping his handgun.

Firefighters quickly put out the blaze and it did not cause serious damage.
