Four people suffered non-life-threatening injuries when a knifeman leapt from the pews and attacked the choir at the end of a Sunday service in an Albuquerque church yesterday. The man yelled "false preacher" as he charged the choir, witnesses tell KOAT. A suspect identified as Lawrence Capener, 24, was arrested after being subdued by parishioners at the Catholic church. Police say he is not a parishioner and the motive for the attack is unknown, the Los Angeles Times reports. (Read more Albuquerque stories.)
