New Year’s Eve gunfire nearly hits pastor during sermon
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Officials say a bullet fired into the air fell through a church roof in Texas and nearly struck a pastor conducting a New Year’s Eve service.
Pastor Evan Risher says he was preaching Monday night at Ramp Church in Fort Worth when a bullet landed on the ground in front of him. About 300 people were inside the church at the time. No one was hurt.
Risher says he picked up the .40-caliber bullet and incorporated it into his sermon.
The bullet was fired from outside of the church. Risher says police believe the bullet came from people firing celebratory gunshots shortly before midnight.
