VAN NUYS ( — A security guard shot and wounded a man he said was acting suspiciously outside a Van Nuys church Sunday morning.

The shooting occurred about 8 a.m., an hour before services were to begin, outside The Church On The Way located near Sherman Way and Hazeltine.

The guards followed the man off church property. They said they shot when he threatened them with a four-inch knife.

They also accused the 20-something suspect of trying to ransack church cabinets and burglarize the property.

CBS2′s Art Barron spoke to witnesses.

Michelle Cano said, “I just heard a gunshot. I didn’t know it was a gunshot, but then I looked outside my window and I saw a guy fall.”
