Guy Walks Into Church, Shoots Father-in-Law in Head: Cops

A Utah man has been arrested for allegedly walking into a church on Father's Day and shooting his father-in-law in the back of the head in front of horrified parishioners. Police say Charles Richard Jennings Jr., 35, stole a pickup truck at gunpoint after the incident at a Catholic church in Ogden but was captured hours later in the next county, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. The injured man is in critical condition but is expected to survive.

Police describe the shooting as a "domestic violence-related incident." Witnesses say Jennings entered the church hand-in-hand with his wife before walking over to a pew and shooting her father. "I’m assuming he brought her to church to watch him kill her father on Father’s Day," a witness tells the Standard-Examiner said. "How dare he come into our sacred little church and do something like this."

He will be ‘riding the needle’, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Covering up a bunch of butt-ugly tatoos.

He was a real catch for the daughter. She must be quite a loser herself.

I forget, what’s that art form which takes a scene and stretches it around a reflective surface?

Hopefully he won't live long enough to receive any more tats.

But our legal system will probably extend the creature's life span several more decades.

In our church, the dude would've been Swiss cheese with several deacons drawing on him.

He’s just upset that Miss Utah gave such a lousy answer in the Miss USA pageant.

Hominid Bipeds are divided into two categories: “People” and “Targets”. The division is behavioral.

Interesting ... ‘others’ were next door at his son’s house? The perp slipped up to the bedside of the sleeping old man welding a knife? I wonder how the detectives are handling this one?
