ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Just hours after a New Mexico teen allegedly gunned down his parents and younger siblings inside the family's home, he was spotted walking the campus of one of Albuquerque's largest Christian churches as security personnel conducted a safety class for dozens of Sunday school teachers.

Video surveillance shows 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego had spent the better part of the day at Calvary Albuquerque last Saturday.

Church security chief Vince Harrison says he doesn't know why Griego decided to come to the church other than it was like his second home.

Harrison says it was a familiar place and people had embraced the teen that Saturday morning, unaware of what had happened.

Griego is facing murder and child abuse charges in connection with his family's slaying. Authorities say he also had plans to drive to a Wal-Mart to shoot more people.
