Like the Church’s other MTC, the flagship Provo MTC was closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Missionary training, however, still continues through online classes.
“We are grateful that the shooting this morning at the Provo Missionary Training Center did not result in physical injury,” said Eric Hawkins, Church spokesman. “The investigation of this incident is being handled by the Provo City Police Department, and questions related to details, motive or any other information should be directed to them.”
