ASHTABULA, OhioWitnesses say the 25-year-old man accused of walking into an Ohio church and fatally shooting his father after an Easter service Sunday was yelling about God and Allah after the killing. Police say Reshad Riddle walked into the Hiawatha Church of God in Christ in Ashtabula and killed his father, 52-year-old Richard Riddle, with a single shot from a handgun Sunday afternoon.
Associate Pastor Sean Adams told The (Ashtabula) Star Beacon newspaper that worshippers started screaming, ducking down and calling 911 on cellphones after the shooting.
""It was terrifying," Adams told the newspaper. "The children were screaming and people were dialing 911. We were afraid to breathe."
Adams said Reshad Riddle then continued into the church, still holding the gun, and yelled that the killing was "the will of Allah. This is the will of God."

NO, the man did NOT yell about God. He yelled about allah.
Just had this reported on Fox...no mention of Allah shout...
Info blackout well initiated by all media outlets...we are the USSR now.
yeah, I know.
but this Administration Propaganda.
Just another muslim doing the muslim shuffle. The important thing is not to succumb to islamophobia.
Amazed they did mention the Allah bit and right in first paragraph (..but not headline). “God and Allah” For the AP that’s a bit of an improvement...
The title at 10:26 A is: “Police: Son Fatally Shoots Dad During Easter Service, Yells Killing Was Will Of Allah”
I am amazed at the country I now live in.
And, honestly, I feel some sympathy for the Germans who were stuck in Germany in 1940 or so. I imagine a fair number of them were asking “How did we get here? And why doesn’t someone shut that lying Goebbels guy up?”
But the train keeps rolling and there seems to be no way to stop it.
OK thanks, maybe it’s yahoo’s doing then.
The headline on yahoo reads
Witness: Man yelled about God after church killing
OK, I could possibly see a guy named Reshad as a Muslim but his father (Richard) was attending Easter service unless the son was a convert and picked his Muslim name.
I’m sure we’ll get every explicit detail about the gun, where it was purchased and nothing on the son such as toxicology, mental illness, Muslim convert, etc...
I’m sure the NYT will get to the bottom of this...
It also has info on the sons criminal record.
Funny how the number of shootings have really picked up since 0 made it his mission to disarm American citizens. I wonder how many shooters he’s paid or if they really do have a mind control device to make liberals (weak minded) idiots do their bidding? Sure seems like it.
yes and the article I linked from the Ashtabula paper has this in the sidebar:
>>Reshad Riddle has been no stranger to Ashtabula County law enforcement, court records show.
He was arrested and charged with two counts of felonious assault, kidnapping, abduction and tampering with evidence in 2006, Ashtabula County Common Pleas Court records show.
In 2007, Reshad Riddle faced a felonious assault charge and in 2009 he was charged with possession of drugs, tampering with evidence and possession of cocaine, court records show.
The charge stemmed from an incident when Reshad Riddle attempted to cut his girlfriends throat, police reports show.
...btw I wonder if Reshad is the younger Riddle’s original given name. Maybe it was “Richard” and he changed it something more Arabic sounding...
that what 9am central time natational radio news said as well...(Fox)
>> unless the son was a convert and picked his Muslim name.
so maybe orig it was Richard (victim), and Richard Jr.
