KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Police say a man was shot while greeting people at a south Kansas City church.
The shooting occurred Sunday at the House of Refuge Family Worship church. The greeter, Montell Bruce, was struck in the head and was treated for non-life-threatening wounds.
Police say a suspect entered the church through a back door and fired multiple shots.
Bruce told KCTV5 that he intervened after he saw someone pull a gun during an argument. He says he tried to get the gun and throw the suspect to the ground. Eventually he ran and fell through a window to get away.
Bruce was the only person hurt in the shooting.
