VIDEO: 84-year-old church security guard gunned down during Bible study

| May 10, 2012

As about 15 members of a Detroit church studied passages at their Wednesday night Bible study, the man hired to protect them was gunned down outside.

The death of 84-year-old Joseph Lewis is a "heartbreaker," said deacon Jimmy Jones, 61, from Victory Way Assembly Church of God & Christ.

"We were in Bible study and a young man ran into the church and said, 'Your guard was shot,' " Jones said today. "They don’t have no regard whether it’s a church, a party store or your house. They don’t have any regard. They don’t have that type of fear anymore."

T.J. Lewis left his two-story home on Begole Street around 6 p.m. last night to walk to the party store around the corner on Tireman.

Along the way, as usual, Joseph Lewis was keeping watch over the Victory Way Assembly Church of God & Christ.

Before crossing Tireman, T.J. Lewis, who happens to share the same last name, stopped to talk to the guard.
