Days after churchgoers left their pews mid-sermon to tackle a gunman armed with a .357 magnum revolver, they returned to their seats at First Baptist Church in Norwood, Mo., for Bible study and to talk through the experience with chaplains.
Many were quiet at first, but by the end of the evening most of the 25 people present began to open up about the traumatic events of July 21 that left the congregation shaken but uninjured.
A man identified in court documents as Earnest J. Smith entered the church that Sunday morning and fired two shots -- one into the ceiling and one at the floor between himself and the pastor -- before being tackled and subdued.
