PORTLAND, ORE. PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ A man who blamed his business problems on the Church of Scientology shot four people at a downtown branch and started a fire with a can of gasoline, authorities said.

Jairus C. Godeka, 38, who was under court order not to have any contact with the church, surrendered after walking out with a female hostage who was heard shouting: "Don't do anything. He's got a gun to my head."

Police talked Godeka into releasing the woman unharmed and dropping his gun.
