Man opens fire in Detroit church

DETROIT (WJRT/AP) - (02/27/06)-- Police say a man who opened fire with a shotgun during a church service in Detroit killed himself a few hours later.
Police say the man, identified as 24-year-old Kevin Lorenzo Collins, opened fire at Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church. A woman was killed and a nine-year-old wounded during the church service.

Outside, a man in his 50s was shot after he tried to protect his wife from a carjacking attempt by the gunman.

About five-and-a-half hours later, police say officers spotted the suspect walking about a mile south of the church and saw him run behind a home. Police say Collins died of what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

More proof that laws forbidding CCW in churches is a bad thing.....
