An Orem man serving as an LDS mission president in Mexico is recovering after he was shot in the legs Monday during an armed robbery at a Subway restaurant in the city of Juchitan de Zaragoza.
President Lynn Richard Madsen, 55, leader of the Mexico Oaxaca Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is under medical care, according to a church spokesman.
“President Madsen sustained injuries to both legs from a single gunshot,” Eric Hawkins said. “Fortunately, his wounds are not serious in nature. He is receiving medical treatment and is expected to make a full recovery.”
He is being treated at a local hospital, his daughter wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday afternoon.
Kayla Madsen Jarrett’s post said her father was shot in the calves during the robbery.
