A crazed gunman drew his gun and appeared to be ready to commit a mass shooting inside a church in Nashville, Tennessee. But MTO News learned that thankfully God appeared to intervene and none of the church members were injured.
Surveillance video shows the man casually approaching the altar and placing a book on the podium before waving a gun at the crowd at the Nashville Light Mission Pentecostal Church.
Terrified worshipers can be seen running and running out of the building, while others have become stuck in their seats. Church leaders stayed and tried to stay calm, MTO News confirmed.
As the man approached the desks with the gun, the shepherd was overwhelmed by a “strange” force and course. Quickly hits him from behind to the ground. At least four other faithful helped detain the gunman until police arrived at the scene along West Trinity Lane.
The pastor later told the media that it was “God” who gave him the will to take down the gunman, MTO News confirmed.
Fortunately, there were no gunshots and no injuries were recorded.
Officers identified the gunman as 26-year-old Dezire Baganda. They say that while Baganda was taken into custody, he claimed to be Jesus and that all churches and schools must be “killed”.
