What part of the game is this?!
Authorities on Sunday arrested Jeremiah Fogle, 57, and said he shot and killed his wife at their home, then stomped through the front doors of the Greater Faith Christian Center Church in West Lakeland and shot two ministers at point-blank range.
The Rev. William Boss, chief pastor at the church, and the Rev. Carl Stewart, the assistant minister, were in Lakeland Regional Medical Center’s trauma and ICU units Sunday night.
Authorities said Stewart, who took three shots to the head, shoulder and back, remained in critical condition throughout the day. Boss suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the head.
Judd said the investigation became more grisly when deputies discovered the body of Fogle’s wife, Theresa Fogle, 56, who was shot to death in the living room of the couple’s home at 740 Savannah Ave, just one block west of the church. Deputies haven’t confirmed the exact time she was killed.
Churchgoers were kneeling in prayer when the shots rang out there, just before 10 a.m.
Eventually, a couple of brave God-fearing church-goers decided that they’d had enough of the wild gunman.
…Judd said Fogle then stepped to the left and shot three times at Stewart, prompting two men in the congregation, Derrick Foster and Corey Reed, to leap up and wrestle him to the ground.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Foster said he and Reed struggled with Fogle for three or four minutes before prying the .32-caliber Colt revolver away from him. A microphone stand toppled during the struggle and cut Fogle on the head, Judd said.
How eff’ed up is the world when you can’t even go into your church and get close to God because the Devil is already there? SMH
