A man in Selma, Alabama, is facing three counts of attempted murder after allegedly shooting his girlfriend, 1-month-old son and a pastor inside a church Sunday morning.
Witnesses told WSFA James Junior Minter opened fire at the church on Sunday, but members of the congregation were able to strip him of his gun before he fled. Police arrested Minter less than a mile from the church.
A 61-year-old pastor was injured in the shooting when he allegedly tried to wrestle the gun away from Minter.
