A Texas pastor shot a suspected burglar after his church was broken into. Police say the man was trying to steal a large box filled with electronics.

Lee Marvin Blue Jr. broke into a Church with the intention of stealing computers, what he didn’t realize is that Pastor Pat Holmes was still inside and had some protection of his own.”We have church break-ins here in the city of Baytown,” said Holmes. “But ours had never been broken into. Unfortunately today was the day.” Surveillance video shows the man breaking through the door which woke up the Pastor who was sleeping inside the Church.

“I just want the public to know that this was a robbery,” said Pastor Holmes. “He broke in the door, had laptops in his hand. I commanded him to stop twice, and he didn’t. So fearing for my life, I did what I had to do.” The suspect is said to be in stable condition.
