Detroit police say the pastor of a storefront church shot and killed a man who tried to attack him during a service.
Assistant Detroit Police Chief Steve Dolunt tells the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press the shooting happened Sunday afternoon just after the start of a service at the City of God church.
Dolunt says the man and the pastor had prior "issues." He says the man was threatening the pastor with a brick when the pastor pulled out a pistol and shot him several times, the Associated Press reports.
Guards saw Kerri Jo Hickman shoot a package filled with cellphones, ear buds, meth, marijuana and digital scales March 10 into North Fork Correctional Unit from her car before driving away.
