Police: Parishioners tackle gunman

Parishioners at a Lakeland, Florida, church tackled a gunman who allegedly shot the pastor and associate pastor on Sunday, holding the suspect until police arrived, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said.

Jeremiah Fogel, 57, was taken into custody following the incident at the Greater Faith Christian Church, the sheriff's office said in a statement. Fogel is also suspected of shooting another person, who died, at a residence before going to the church, police said.

Pastor William Boss and associate pastor Carl Stewart were being treated at Lakeland Regional Medical Center.

    You are about as lowq as it gets.
    Jae is 17.
    Not 18.
    You're wrong again.
    In your quest to get revenge on me, you will hurt these two innocents.
    You do what you have to, philip.
    And so will I.

    Now I see why tou have never posted a pic of yourelf on FB. You must be living vicariously through your daughters. And the one with the black makeup who looks like death warmed over...she does in fact have a foul mouth...have you never read any of her wall posts Donna? Are you even in denial concerning your own kids?

    Hmmm, 17? Her b/d says otherwise. (shrug) So you were only 46 when she was born? Is she the one who has you raising her baby, Neala? No? Either way, they didn't quite turn-out the way you wanted, did they. They turned out the way you raised them. I have some other "stuff" on you Donna...if you'd like to keep going with your denial. Ready for round 4? Simply reply "bring it on" and I will oblidge. Before a city can be rebuilt, it must first be torn down. Not all the way down though. You have one wall still standing Donna. It's up to you if I tear it down. go

    Once in a while, we have special days where adults in our numerous recovery groups bring their children along with them. At first, most parents don't want to get their family involved. But once their denial has been broken, they happily bring their children...no longer ashamed of them. It takes some parents over a year to reach this stage of development and recovery. I see you aren't quite there yet, Donna. But we can get their real fast if you want.

    You know nothing, as usual.
    Talk about Leah, why don't you?
    Since you're holding yourself up to be parent of the year.
    And no, the 17 year old is not the one with the baby, moron.
    Yet another thing you have wrong.
    See, you don't know everything, but how like you to insist that you do.
    Everyone reading this will see it for what it is; a cheap attempt to get back at someone because they called you out on a mistake you made.
    Doing God's work again, I see....hypocrite.

    Trying to emotionally blackmail is essential to your recovery, is it?
