New York priest and his significant other looted in $400K adornments heist during live-transferred administration
A Brooklyn priest and his better half were burglarized during a live-streamed lesson on Sunday
after outfitted attackers raged the help and snatched around $400,000 worth of gems, police said.
Minister Lamor Whitehead was busy conveying his message at the Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries church in Canarsie
when three shooters burst in at around 11:15 a.m., the New York Police Department said.
The equipped attackers "showed guns and requested property"
from the 44-year-old priest and his significant other, 38, police said.
"At the point when I see them come into the safe-haven with their firearms, I advised everyone to get out, everyone simply get out,"
Whitehead said in a video presented on Instagram following the occurrence.
"I couldn't say whether they needed to shoot the congregation up or on the other hand on the off chance that they were only coming for a burglary."
Eventually, he said he was grateful that it was the last option, yet said "they took my better half's all's gems and took the entirety of my adornments," including his wedding ring.
In video shared web-based by neighborhood news sources seeming to show the episode,
which was caught on a livestream that seems to have since been brought down,
Whitehead can heard say "okay, okay," prior to dropping to the ground on all fours.
A concealed suspect can later be seen moving toward the diocesan and holding what has all the earmarks of being a gun pointed at his back, prior to seeming to carry off his gems.
The video has not yet been freely confirmed by NBC News.
