"He was entering the sanctuary when he opened fire…" Tammy Sommers recalling when Jim David Adkisson walked into TVUUC and opened fire on July 27, 2008. Two people died and seven were injured, including Sommers. She suffered a bullet to the head.
"The toughest memory that I had was I bled on my children in a way a mother would never wanted to," she said Monday.

"One thinks of that, it's act of hatred," Rev. Buice commented.
