Church attendees at the City of God Ministries got the shock of a lifetime on Sunday when a brick-wielding assailant attacked their pastor. But the Detroit pastor came prepared.
The pastor was carrying a Glock. He pulled out his sidearm and fired at his attacker, killing the man. Assistant Police Chief Steve Dolunt told the Detroit News prior to the attack the man had repeatedly threatened the pastor.
“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.”
