Man charged in shooting of Kansas City church greeter

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A Kansas City man is charged with shooting in a south Kansas City church, the wounding of a greeter.

Orlando Gentry was charged Tuesday with assault, possession of a firearm, unlawful use of a weapon and carrying a loaded firearm in the recording.

Kansas City police say the 29-year-old Gentry shot during a confrontation Sunday in the House of Refuge church.

One of the bullets grazed Montell Bruce in the head and then he fell through a window in the sanctuary. Bruce was treated and released.

The Kansas City Star reports that Gentry told investigators he got in a fight in the church, but denied having a gun.

Online court documents do not show that Gentry has a lawyer.
