Man Stabs Four at Albuquerque Church, Suspect Thought Choir Leader Was a Freemason
A stabbing at an Albuquerque church has led to the arrest of one man.
Lawrence Capener reportedly stabbed four people at St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church on Sunday, April 28th.
The 24-year-old Capener has been charged with three counts of aggravated battery, and is being held on $250,000 bail.
Authorities say that Capener began stabbing people as mass was ending, and continued until he was taken down by church members and held until police responded to the scene.
The Associated Press reports that Capener has told authorities that he was going after the church’s choir director because he believed the man was a Freemason.
Capener has reportedly told investigators he believes that Masons are part of a conspiracy.
No one was killed in the incident.
