Last week I reported a shooting in a Kansas City church involving a church greeter receiving a head wound when a man entered the church and shot him.

This week authorities made an arrest of the suspect, an apparent church member who lived in the neighborhood and was cited as a Good Samaritan in a recent car crash.

Like most things, once the police begin to investigate, the true story begins to emerge.

Last Sunday, police say one church member, Orlando Gentry, shot church greeter, Montell Bruce. Gentry is now charged with first degree assault, armed criminal action, and possession of a weapon.

The bullet grazed Bruce’s head. He suffered minor injuries.

Fields, the church pastor, discussed Gentry. “We still love him; we are praying that he gets his help and everything that he needs.”
