Pa. Police Kill Armed Minister LYNNPORT, Pa. (AP) -- Police shot and killed a minister dressed as a ninja Wednesday after an extended standoff that began when they tried to take him to a mental hospital. State police said the Rev. Robert W. Furler, 44, had leveled a gun at a trooper outside his home just before the officer killed him before dawn Wednesday. They said he was carrying two semiautomatic weapons, a long-barreled shotgun and a sword. Furler was a former Lutheran minister who had recently started his own congregation, the Christ Our Refuge Church. It was not immediately clear why officers were trying to put him in a mental hospital. State police Capt. Theodore Kohuth said the shooting was justified. He did not release the name of the trooper who shot Furler and said there would be an investigation. Kohuth said Furler gave no warning before walking out the front door in black ninja clothing and a black mask, holding the weapons. Police told Furler to drop his weapons and surrender, but Furler pointed the shotgun at the trooper and the trooper shot him twice, Kohuth said.

Heard this on Paul Harvey this morning, nearly bust a gut laughing! PS: Anyone know what is going on with Mr. Harvey? I knew he was ill over a month ago but he hasn't come back yet, hope he is doing okay...
