Church Service Interrupted as Man Pulls Gun, Attempts to Sh0ot Pastor

A church session was halted after a young man allegedly attempted to kill a pastor while he was preaching and pulled a pistol on him, but the weapon did not discharge.

The Pennsylvania State Police said that the event occurred at Jesus’ Dwelling Place Church in North Braddock, Pennsylvania, just after 1:00 p.m. ET.

The pastor, Glenn Germany, was supposedly about to be shot when the accused shooter, who police identified as 26-year-old Bernard Junior Polite, entered the church and made an attempt to kill Germany.

“All of a sudden, I just saw a gun pointing right at me. And at that point, all I could try to do is run for cover,” he said.
