He should have left.

 

A 46-year-old man has been charged with voluntary manslaughter after police say he fatally shot a fellow worshiper during an argument over a seat at a Pennsylvania church.

Mark Storms, of Lansdale, was charged in the April 24 death of Robert Braxton III, 27, Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele announced on April 28.

Braxton was shot by Storms during an 11 a.m. service at Keystone Fellowship Church in Montgomeryville, the district attorney says.

1. Braxton Was ‘Verbally Disruptive & Agitated’ Before He Was Shot, the DA Says

The victim, Robert Braxton, was “verbally disruptive and agitated” when he arrived at the 11 a.m. church service, the district attorney’s office said. Police interviewed 50 witnesses, according to the press release.

Mark Storms approached Braxton and told him he had to leave the sanctuary, the district attorney’s office said.

“Braxton then struck Storms in the face at which time Storms fired two shots from his Ruger 9mm semi-automatic handgun, which struck and killed Braxton,” according to the district attorney.

At a press conference, District Attorney Kevin Steele said Braxton began creating a disturbance after a fellow church member sitting behind him touched his shoulder and said he’d taken an occupied church.

“Witnesses then saw the victim calming down and saw the shooter come over. When he came over he had a gun out,” Steele told reporters. “It is clear the shooter brought a gun to a crowded church, he introduced that gun into a verbal altercation that turned into a fistfight, and then fired the gun twice aiming at the vital part of the body, killing the victim.”

Steele said the shooting was not reasonable self-defense.

The badge was not a legal instrument to carry a concealed weapon.  It could as easily said federal deputy marshal or KGB agent.
