VA Man Threatens to Shoot Churchgoers

Virginia police confronted a man outside a South Richmond church who was beating on the house of worship’s door, yelling racial slurs and threatening the congregation as they worshipped on Thursday night.

A police officer who was working security at United Nations Church International pointed a gun at the man, thinking he had a knife, according to the Richmond Times -Dispatch.

The man instead had a long piece of plastic. He was ultimately taken into custody after backup officers arrived to assist.

After consulting with the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office, police determined the man had not violated the law. The man, who has not been identified, is currently under 72-hour observation at Tucker Pavilion at Chippenham Hospital.

The really bad thing about incidents like the Charleston Shooting happening, is the constant fear of whether or not there will be copycats.

May all of those be shielded from the hate of others.
