Carl Chinn (right) was a member of the New Life Church security team that found himself woefully undertrained and undergunned when it mattered most.

The murderer had carried out a successful attack the day before at another location, and had just killed two people and wounded three more in the church parking lot. There were several thousand people still on the church grounds as the killer entered the building.
