Man stabs parishioners during church service

Albuquerque, N.M. -- A man went on a stabbing rampage at an Albuquerque church during the service.

Four people were injured when witnesses say 24-year-old Lawrence Capener attacked members of the choir.

Capener then shouted that the choir was working with the devil and you could hear it in their songs.
The suspect's mother also happens to be a minister at the church.

"He goes, 'I’m coherent, I know what I’m saying and I know what I'm doing.' And I just said, 'Have mercy on your soul,'" said Antoinette DeLeon.

Someone who once worked with the suspect at The Dollar Tree said he confronted and even threatened one of their managers.
