The gunman says he was headed to "fulfill a prophecy."
Sunday morning Tony Dwayne Albert II was arrested in the town of Seguin, Texas after allegedly admitting to planning to go to a church to fulfill "a prophecy." According to the ABC affiliate KSATin San Antonio, the authorities were tipped off about Albert when someone noticed him in the street around 7 a.m. carrying a gun while wearing what an off-duty police officer described as "tactical-style clothing, a surgical face shield, carrying a loaded firearm and extra ammunition."
Albert allegedly told the officer that he believed he was in another city and was headed to a church in that city.
"We're extremely grateful (for the person who called 911), and I know the citizens of Seguin are (grateful), regardless of if he thought he was somewhere else," said Seguin police spokeswoman Tanya Brown. "(Albert) could have carried out a shooting, or he was capable of doing that because he had a loaded handgun."
Brown adds that they are currently withholding the identity of the church that Seguin was going to out of an effort to avoid a scare as the investigation is ongoing,
Currently, Albert is being held on charges of possession of marijuana and being a felon in possession of a firearm. The 33-year old is being held on $100,000 bond.
