Armed pastor takes on attacker in church vestibule

Following his sermon Sunday, a Detroit pastor was reportedly attacked by a man with whom he had previously had issues. The 25-year-old attacker, identified by police as Deante Smith, was armed with a hammer and a brick – neither of which was a match for the pastor’s pistol.

According to Assistant Police Chief Steve Dolunt, the pastor shot and killed Smith in what is being treated as an act of self-defense:

The pastor had had issues with the man before. He had been threatening to do him 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 four or five times and the man died.

The shooting remains under investigation, Dolunt added.
