Detroit Pastor in Custody For An Incident That Turned Fatal

On October 18, around 1:45 pm, at the City of God church on Detroit's west side, a suspect stormed into the church brandishing a brick. The congregation and the pastor knew the man.

Assistant Detroit Police Chief Steve Dolnut said, “The suspect entered the church, he allegedly had a brick in his hand and was threatening the pastor.” Dolnut said the pastor had “filed a police report” regarding a previous incident with this same individual.

Authorities said the suspect had a history of “threatening… members of the congregation” as well. As a result, the pastor pulled a Glock and fired “four or five shots” at the suspect. The suspect succumbed to his wounds. Now, the pastor is in custody for questioning.

USA Today reports that investigators are trying to figure out if the pastor had a permit for the gun. According to The Christian Science Monitor, guns are illegal to possess in Michigan churches. Although, last week, Michigan lawmakers met to discuss the possibility of expanding concealed carry to churches, schools, and other gun free zones where law-abiding citizens are rendered defenseless at the hands of criminals.
