Pastor Who Shot Man 5 Times In Church, Killing Him, Was Sleeping With Victim’s Wife (VIDEO)
A pastor who shot at a guy supposedly wielding a brick during a church service has described himself as an easy preacher who was defending himself against a madman but imagine if there’s more to the storyline? Imagine if issues and the risks he says he’s had with his victim have an origin in one of his own activities like fathering a child with the dead man’s wife?
Based on Pastor Keon Allison and members of the City of God church on Detroit’s West Side, 25-year old Deante Smith stormed into the church. Authorities say the guy was well known by the congregation, particularly the great, sort, firearm-wielding pastor who shot at Smith five times an extreme overreaction to someone wielding a section of rock.
The defendant entered the church, he was endangering the pastor and supposedly had a brick in his hand, said Asst. Detroit Police Chief Steve Dolunt. We’ve had a previous episode, at least one, and a police report was filed.
But imagine if the police report was related to Smith taking issue with the fact that his wife was impregnated by the great pastor?
On September 16, the dead man, who no longer has the capacity to speak for himself thanks to the lethal dose of God’s Love he received, posted on Facebook that he’d found the infant he believed was his…was really Allison’s.
Can’t wait to see at City of God Ministry, he wrote. I’ll be there with the truth. Smith afterwards described to friends that were worried the pastor had fathered a baby with his wife, Tykia.
Those who understand Smith, a Michigan Lightning football player, describe him as a person that is good. Actually, there are members of the congregation that claim he was wielding a brick. Pals say he entered the church in an effort to get close with the pastor before going to counseling because the pastor impregnated his wife to save his union. The Detroit News reports:
Deja Ward, Deante Smith’s younger sister, said that her brother, who was killed went on Grand River near Lahser to City of God Ministry to get close with the pastor before pursuing counseling with his wife.
Despite the questionable story of a brick-wielding madman, the pastor was taken by authorities at his word. He was released without charges, and was never taken into detention.
Monday he was never in custody, Officer Jennifer Moreno said. He was only brought downtown (on Sunday) for questioning regarding the event. He cooperated completely, remained a couple hours and went home.
Weren’t certain at this stage whether the guy had mental issues or what, Dolunt said. Its still under investigation.
The pastor had had problems with the guy before, he said. He’d been threatening him to do physical injury. He walked into the service and went with a brick after the pastor. The pastor pulled out his Glock and fired several shots. I believe he hit him and the guy expired.
Ward says that her brother was suspended from his occupation and that he’d been offered anger management courses, and after Smith had an argument with the pastor outside the workplace. She says after he reconciled with his wife he meant to take them. Step one, needless to say, was talking it out.
The nerve and his contagious grin in which he approached life, off and on the field, are aspects that may stick with all of us, his former football team said in a statement after Smith’s departure. More significant than all his on-the-field accomplishments, was his ability to reach someone who was going through a difficult time.
Before every game, he cried Jesus and pointed to the skies! He believed in his family, God, and this football team, Smith’s former trainer said. He was a great guy, a leader.
Authorities say they’re investigating the new developments. The pastor asserts that multiple bullet holes were needed to subdue a guy who was supposedly wielding a brick and the pastor’s declarations that he was attempting to help Smith by getting his wife pregnant could easily lead one to believe this to be a somewhat spurious story, all things considered.
