LAKELAND, Fla. – A church parishioner says he helped tackle a man who shot two Florida pastors and was able to wrestle the gun away from the suspect.
Derrick Foster tells The Associated Press he was kneeling in prayer Sunday when the gunman, identified by police as Jeremiah Fogle, entered the church.
Foster says he heard one shot and then screaming. When he looked up, Fogle turned around pointed the gun at the rest of the church.
That's when Foster and another man tackled him. They wrestled with him for three or four minutes before being able to get the gun.
The two pastors were critically injured. Police say Fogle shot his wife to death at their home before he went to the church.
