A Detroit church service turned violent Sunday when police say a pastor shot a man who reportedly threatened him with a brick. The man was taken to a local hospital, where he later died.
According to local media, a 25-year-old man armed with a brick stormed into the City of God Church around 1:45 p.m., and the 36-year-old pastor pulled out a gun and shot the man multiple times.
WDIV reports the unnamed pastor was close with the alleged attacker and had tried to help him in the past. Detroit police noted the pastor had an unspecified incident with the victim before Sunday and had previously filed a police report.
