LAKELAND FL:   — As the congregation bowed their heads and prayed, a former church member stormed into the church and opened fire, shooting and wounding the pastor and associate pastor from behind before he was wrestled to the ground.


Derrick Foster, a teacher in the ministry, heard the gunfire, then screams and he and another man tackled Fogle.


"The first thing in my mind was, 'I have to take this gun away,'" said Foster, who was among the 20 or so people at the Sunday service at Greater Faith Christian Center Church.


Foster saw the man near the pulpit, turning around with the gun in his hand.


"He had a great grip on the gun," Foster said. "My plan was, as soon as he hit the floor, it would cause him to drop it. But he didn't drop it."


He said it took three or four minutes of struggling with the gunman before he finally wrested the weapon away.


The gunman had six rounds in his pocket. "He was prepared to shoot even more," Sheriff Grady Judd said.
