PHOENIX (AP) A homeless ex-convict with a history of violence and drug abuse was arrested Monday on suspicion of killing a clergyman with a handgun that had been retrieved by another priest after he was hit with an iron rod at a Phoenix church, police said.
Police say the Rev. Joseph Terra went to investigate noises in a church courtyard and was attacked by 54-year-old Gary Michael Moran with the piece of metal before the priest fled and got a .357-caliber gun from his bedroom.
Moran wrestled the weapon away from the injured priest and killed Terra's assistant, the Rev. Kenneth Walker, after he rushed to the aid of his colleague, court records show.
Moran stole a camera and fled in Walker's car, police said.
Police Chief Daniel Garcia called the attack "a violent, tragic, horrifying offense" committed by a career criminal who had been out of prison only six weeks. Moran had served about eight years on charges that included aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

They spelled his name wrong. Should be “Moron.”
I thought Eddie Van Halen could at least afford teeth.
Pass the bug spray. That one needs to go.
I just saw him downtown with a cardboard sign saying “down on my luck, please help!”
That’s my guess.
Studies show that old criminals are the most dangerous. If confronted by one, aim for center mass and pull the trigger. Prayers for Father.
Career criminals such as this have no business ever living in society. Either keep them in prison, or, as I would prefer, just execute them. They serve no purpose in life and are a threat to us all.

Of course I was not there, and have no idea what the area looks like, but it is unfortunate, that he wasn't able to shoot center mass, before the perp was able to get it away from him.
Leftists will be upset the priest tried to defend with a pistol.
The fact the murderer was released again from prison only 6 weeks earlier doesn’t bother them at all.
