Prayer inspires man to hand mini assault-style rifle into church, pastor says

CHICAGO — The day began with the police arriving at the New Beginnings Church in Park Manor, but for a good reason.

According to Pastor Corey Brooks, a man who they'd been praying with decided to hand over a mini M4 assault-style weapon to police.

Chicago police later collected the gun, tagging it and logging it before telling Brooks: "you saved lives today."

Brooks says he hopes others in his church will spread the word of repentance and follow suit.
