Church pastor Danny Kirk Sr. was killed in at his suburban Fort Worth church Monday by an attacker who rammed a car into a church wall, then chased the pastor and beat him with an electric guitar, Forest Hill police said.
Kirk who was the founding pastor of Greater Sweethome Missionary Baptist Church was beaten to death by an unnamed suspect.
When police arrived the suspect was still attacking Mr. Kirk forcing the police to use a Taser to subdue him. The suspect was arrested and put into the back of the squad car. He too died a short time after being taken into custody.
A 911 call was placed just after 11 a.m. The person reported a possible burglary and assault going on at the church.
A janitor, who was also inside the church with the pastor during the attack, was injured somehow and taken to a local hospital for observation.
