Police in Illinois are hunting three gunmen after churchgoers were robbed during a Sunday service.

Witnesses at the Ira Grove Baptist Church in East St. Louis tell KTVI that the men, wearing bandanas over their faces, made everyone lie on the floor while they stole their cash and valuables.

East St. Louis Police Chief Michael Floore said no one was hurt in the incident.

About 50 people were inside the church at the time of the robbery, KTVI reports.
