Pastor talks about shooting at church

| February 24, 2011

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (WSVN) — A South Florida pastor is speaking out after police were forced to fire on a knife-wielding man at his church.

"He was very aggressive," said Luther Memorial Lutheran Church Pastor James Congee. "We have odd things that happen, but not like that."

Congee has been pastor at the church for nearly a decade and a pastor for more than 30 years and said he has never witnessed a church day like Wednesday's. "I heard a commotion outside and the janitor came running into the room, and behind him was this fellow with a knife. He was right on top of him," said Congee.

Congee was having bible study when the knife-wielding man stormed a room with a dozen church members inside. "I pushed the custodian to the side. The fellow with the knife got caught in the door," he said. "I pushed him out and got the door closed."
