VIDEO: Pastor Tackles Gunman During Sunday Service

Nashville pastor Ezekiel Ndikumana did a lot more than just deliver a sermon on Sunday. Ndikumana was leading the congregation in prayer when a man walked to the front and pointed a gun at the congregation.  Ndikumana immediately tackled the man to the ground, and managed to grab the gun away with the help of other parishioners. The gunman, 26-year-old Dezire Baganda, was arrested and is facing more than a dozen counts of aggravated assault.  Pastor Ndikumana told reporters “I would say that God used me”.

Update: Police charged the man with 15 counts of felony aggravated assault.
