    Man entered church wielding brick, threatening congregation, police say

    DETROIT -
    Church of God A pastor shot and killed a man armed with a brick during a church service on Sunday after the man threatened parishioners at the City of God Church on Detroit’s west side, according to police.

    The shooting happened inside the church on Grand River Avenue around 1:45 p.m.

    The 25-year-old man stormed into the church during a service wielding a brick. Police say the man was well known by the congregation and especially the pastor.

    The 37-year-old pastor pulled out a gun and shot the man multiple times. Authorities say the pastor had been trying to help the man, but those efforts had gone south.

    Investigators said four or five shots were fired from the Glock handgun.

    "The suspect entered the church, he allegedly had a brick in his hand and was threatening the pastor," said Asst. Detroit Police Chief Steve Dolunt. "We've had a previous incident, at least one, and the pastor filed a police report."

    The man was taken to the Botsford Hospital and was pronounced dead.

    Authorities said the man has a history of threatening the pastor and members of the congregation.

    The pastor was being questioned at police headquarters. He was never arrested. He was released after questioning while the investigation continues.

    Police will turn over their findings over to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office for a charging decision.

    He could have easily killed 8-10 people with that brick, especially if the brick shattered and the shards created a shrapnel effect. Good thing the right rev was packing heat.

    He should have looked for a "Gun Free Zone" sign, just poor planning on his part.

    How fast can someone throw a brick? I think special teams or Tiger Schulman could have handled this. I don't like the idea of priests having guns, you find out there's a scandal with the building fund and you've got another Budd Dwyer on your hands.

    This is pretty much a perfect encapsulation of the gun crazy christian contingent of USA politics.
