A local FOX affiliate out of Birmingham, Alabama is reporting that two deaf men began arguing during a church service which lead to a stabbing.
Church of the Reconciler‘s leader, Reverend Matt Lacey, told FOX-6, the two men fought by signing to one another, adding, that it escalated when one of the men picked up a sharp object and stabbed the other man in the chest.
The victim was rushed to the hospital but he had non-threatening injuries. The assailant was taken into police custody.
The church has a special ministry for the homeless and the two men were a part of that service.
