Minister on the way to Promise Keepers is killed

A minister of music preparing to leave for Saturday's Promise Keepers rally in Washington, D.C., was killed shortly before the journey was to begin.

Brian Tribble, 36, may have surprised a man trying to rob a vending machine at Tribble's church about 1:30 a.m. Friday, church members said.Thirty-five men who were to travel with Tribble left for Washington, saying that's what the slain father of four would have wanted them to do.

Church member Gary Rush found the body. Tribble had been shot in the back of the head, said Rush's wife, Robbi, church pianist.
