One Dead, Three Wounded in Texas Church Stabbing

Witnesses identified 28-year-old Marco Antonio Moreno as the attacker, police said. Moreno was arrested and charged with murder and aggravated assault.

"The officers at the scene suspect there is a mental health issue with the offender", said Hooper, who noted that Moreno has an "alcohol- and drug-related history" with police.

A 61-year-old man is dead after he was stabbed during a church service inside a home Wednesday night.

Jail records don't indicate whether he has an attorney.

A member of a Texas house church went berserk Wednesday evening and stabbed the pastor and three others before police detained him.

Several people standing outside the home told police there were people inside who were stabbed.

Police said the church members had been gathering at the pastor's home every day as part of a 40-day pledge. The band member was stabbed in the neck, according to the newspaper.

Clement said two more people received punctures - one to the hand and another in the arm.

"Everything was fine it was nice and quiet as soon as they got done singing the offender just jumped up and attacked him", said Lt. Jay Clement.

He said it's not clear what led to the stabbing.
