(CNN) — Mass had just ended at St. Jude Thaddeus Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the choir had begun its closing hymns when it happened.
A 24-year-old man jumped several pews and rushed toward the choir with a knife in his hand, screaming, “Fake preacher!”
He stabbed four choir members during the attack Sunday morning — before several parishioners jumped on the suspect and held him down until officers arrived.
“I looked up, and I saw a young man with a very scary look in his eyes — fury, anger, hatred,” choir member Brenda King told CNN affiliate KOAT. “He had a knife and was attacking our soloist, and our flutist tried to protect him and got stabbed also.”
