Police in Forest Hill, a suburb of Fort Worth, said they had to use a taser to subdue the unidentified attacker, who died a short time after being taken into custody. Rev. Danny Kirk Sr., the founding pastor of Greater Sweethome Missionary Baptist Church, died shortly after police arrived at the scene.
Forest Hill Police Chief Dan Dennis said the suspect drove his car into a church wall before noon Monday, apparently on purpose. The suspect got out of the car and began to attack the pastor in the parking lot before chasing him into the church. The church secretary hid and called 911.
Police arrived to find the suspect assaulting Kirk with an electric guitar that they believe was already inside the church, Dennis said. An officer used a taser on the suspect, handcuffed him and put him in the back of a patrol car. By then, Kirk had died.
