Robert Braxton was killed in a Pennsylvania church on Sunday after an argument over a seat.

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS – A churchgoer shot a fellow parishioner in a Pennsylvania church after a fight broke out over a seat in the sanctuary on Sunday, authorities say.

The argument started when a churchgoer told Robert Braxton III, 27, he was sitting in seats reserved for two other church members during Sunday service at the Keystone Fellowship Church, district attorney Kevin Steele said.

He yelled “don’t f—ing touch me” after a church member tapped him on the shoulders to let him know he was in someone else’s seat, an affidavit obtained by NBC Philadelphia said.

Witnesses said Braxton started causing a fuss over the seat, but soon calmed down after talking to a church usher and a pastor.

But the situation soon turned violent when Mark Storms, 46, approached Braxton, carrying a gun in his hand and telling the 27-year-old to get out of the sanctuary.

  2. The Irony is: A Church is specifically for Sinners (apart from Prison) where you do NOT expect Sinners to Sin. When they do, everyone is Surprised!!.

  3. This incident should send a message to other churches. My recommendation is that all seats should be available to anyone who desires to sit in the house of the Lord by a first come first sit policy.

  4. White fanatic fatally shoots black guy in church during an argument over "reserved" seats in the house of the Lord. Has the gunman been praying to Satan as God does not inspire his "anointed" to behave that way?
    Thou shall not kill. Thou shall not covet (thy neighbour's pew in the church).
