THOU SHALL NOT KILL UNLESS YOU ARE ATTACKED BY A CRAZED MAN WITH A BRICK …
A Detroit pastor shot and killed a brick-weilding man with his Glock handgun during a Sunday church service. The incident allegedly happened about 15 minutes into the 1:30 p.m. service at the City of God ministries storefront church on Grand River near Lahser. According to the Detroit Free Press, the man with the brick never actually made it into the church, but went after the pastor in the vestibule. The pastor responded with gunfire, shooting the man multiple times, hitting the man in the chest. The man died a short while later at Botsford Hospital. The pastor was taken into police custody for questioning.
There is no separation of Church and Glock
Violence marred a church service Sunday when a man with a brick attacked the pastor, who whipped out his Glock handgun and fired several shots, killing the man, Detroit police said.
The incident allegedly happened about 15 minutes into the 1:30 p.m. service at the City of God ministries storefront church on Grand River near Lahser, Assistant Chief Steve Dolunt said.
“The pastor had had issues with the man before,” Dolunt said. “He had been threatening him to do bodily harm. He walked into the service and went after the pastor with a brick. The pastor pulled out his Glock and fired several shots. I think he hit him 4 or 5 times, and the man died.”
The pastor was taken into police custody for questioning, Dolunt said.
After the questioning wraps up, police will submit a warrant request to prosecutors, who will then decide whether the shooting was justified.
“We’re not sure at this point whether the man had mental problems or what,” Dolunt said. “It’s still under investigation.”
As we always say, don’t bring a brick to a gun fight.
