I got out and walked around waiting for them to leave before me. I noticed they drove around a little bit to watch my movement pattern, but it turned into nothing.

Guest Preacher Richard Rubi preaching “The man and his purpose”
Fayetteville, N.C. — It was a frightening sight for many when a man carrying a rifle walked through the doors of a Fayetteville church during a service on New Year’s Eve, but congregants describe what happened next as a holiday miracle.
Parishioners had gathered at Heal the Land Outreach Ministries on New Year’s Eve when an armed man walked in, and Pastor Larry Wright was the first to see him.
“I asked him ‘can I help you’,” said Wright. “His next words were ‘can you pray for me.’ When he said that, then I knew everything was going to be alright.”
Church member Taylor Morgan said that upon seeing the man, her first thought was of the fatal Charleston church shooting, but then the man went up to the altar and put the gun on it.
“I didn’t see anything but this big rifle,” she said.
Days after the event, the congregation was still giving thanks because they were all aware the story could have had a very different ending.
As WRAL News spoke to Wright about security in churches, the man responsible for the scare returned to the church- this time to apologize.
The man, who was just released from the hospital and asked not to be identified, said his wife was just diagnosed with a debilitating disease. They are struggling financially and the power had just been cut off at his home. On top of that, the veteran explained that he is struggling with PTSD, partly because he can’t afford his medication.
He faces no charges in connection to the incident.
“[There was] financial stress. I haven’t been on my medicine for a while,” said the man.
“I saw in his eyes hopelessness, hurt, pain, despair,” said Wright.
The man is also a convicted felon who was given a gun. He said he came to the church because he thought it would be a safe place to get rid of the weapon without getting in trouble.
Nobody was injured during the incident.
The man said he never meant any harm and on Sunday, after saying thank you and asking for forgiveness, he asked if the congregation would allow him to be part of the Heal the Land Outreach Ministries.
“I pray that he comes back and visits us. I’m not scared of him, not now,” said church member Lucrecia Hall.
The congregation believes the night they opened the door to the troubled man, they opened the door to God. The congregants said they have made plans to baptize the man next Sunday.

Body camera footage shows how quickly a Florida traffic stop escalated into an arrest in Flagler County.
Warning: Some language
The official press release said:
A traffic stop on a vehicle for a stop sign violation turned into a four count felony arrest after a convicted felon pulls a gun during a traffic stop and had possibly planned to shoot a Flagler County Deputy or commit “suicide by cop.”
Flagler Deputy Smith (FCSO) conducted a traffic stop on a black Ford sedan on N. Church St. and E. Howe St., in Bunnell. The driver, later identified as Alphonso Brooks, seemed unusually nervous. During the traffic stop Bunnell Officer Hirschi (BPD) arrived to assist along with FCSO K-9 Deputy Duenas. Deputy Duenas deployed his K-9 partner, Valor, to perform an exterior narcotic search on the vehicle. Valor indicated the possible presence of narcotics in the vehicle. Brooks was requested to exit the vehicle. As Brooks was exiting the vehicle, Deputy Smith and Officer Hirschi observed Brooks reach back in to the driver’s seat and grab a firearm in his hand as he began exiting the vehicle and attempted to conceal it from law enforcement’s view. As he stood up, the grip of the pistol was grasped in his right palm with his fingers wrapped around the grip, consistent with how a firearm is fired. Deputy Smith immediately began to yell “GUN! GUN! GUN!” and drew his firearm from its holster.
Deputy Duenas pinned Brooks against the frame of the vehicle as the firearm became dislodged from Brooks’ grip and fell to the ground. Deputy Smith confirmed the safety of the other law enforcement officers, secured the suspect and the firearm. Brooks was arrested for aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and carrying a concealed firearm. Brooks was booked into the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility on $50,000 bond.
“This encounter could have quickly become a deputy involved shooting caused by the suspect’s actions,” said Sheriff Staly. “Deputies Duenas and Smith along with Bunnell Officer Hirshi showed great restraint and are safe because of their training and teamwork. This could have had a very different outcome with the death of Brooks or a deputy of officer.”
