A North Texas congregation is reeling after an attacker rammed a car into a church wall, chased the pastor, and beat him to death with an electric guitar.

Police told reporters they didn’t know why the unidentified suspect attacked Rev. Danny Kirk Sr., founding pastor of the Greater Sweethome MIssionary Baptist Church.

In a harrowing 911 call an unidentified church secretary said that some staff tried to fight him off but that  Kirk was in desperate need of an ambulance.

    The cop looks like a zombie eating the woman on the ground while the guy in the background zombie-walks in for seconds.

    Looks like the Perp died in the back of a patrol car. Huh, wonder how that happened.
