An attacker stabbed four members of a church choir in Albuquerque today, rushing in as the choir began their closing hymns and shouting "Fake preacher!" before stabbing the victims.
The name of the attacker, who was quickly subdued by churchgoers, has not been released. He is said to be in his early 20s, and not a member of the church. By most eyewitness accounts, he sounds deranged:
"I looked up, and I saw a young man with a very scary look in his eyes—fury, anger, hatred," choir member Brenda Baca King said. "He had a knife and was attacking our soloist, and our flutist tried to protect him and got stabbed also."
All four victims sustained non life-threatening injuries and were treated at the hospital.
