Parishioners of the New Liberty Missionary Baptist Church,
Dallas, captured a gunman and his woman accomplice when they tried
to rob the church during services. Wearing ski masks, the pair
interrupted the sermon, held the minister and a member of the
congregation at gunpoint and demanded "all the take." Told the
money was in the church office, they retreated, marching their
hostages ahead of them. Near the rear of the church, a parishioner
sprang up, wrestled with the gunman and jammed his hand between the
hammer and firing pin of the man's revolver. A single shot was
fired. Then the man was overwhelmed and disarmed, still frantically
trying to fire the jammed pistol.
