More than two months after allegedly shooting northern Idaho pastor Tim Remington, Kyle Odom was escorted back to Idaho from Washington, D.C. on Friday by federal marshals. Odom, 30, is accused of shooting pastor Tim Remington multiple times in the parking lot of Altar Church in Coeur d'Alene on March 5. The shooting occurred less than 24 hours after Remington gave the invocation at a Ted Cruz presidential campaign rally.

Odom, of Coeur d'Alene, reportedly fled to Boise, took a flight to Washington, D.C. and was arrested March 8 outside the White House. Law enforcement said Odom tossed a flash drive and a packet of documents over the White House fence. Authorities later said the packet included a lengthy "hypersexualized Martian manifesto" Odom wrote, in which he threatened the lives of scores of people, including dozens of members of the United States Congress.

KXLY TV 4 reported Pastor Remington, who has been recuperating at home, was briefly reunited with his congregation when he made a surprise visit to a May 1 event in Coeur d'Alene being held to help with Remington's medical expenses. During the event, "a representative for Governor Butch Otter declared May 1, 2016 as Pastor Tim Remington Day."
