Fox 16 has some video of victims of the Sunday School robbery yesterday of the Third Missionary Baptist Church on W. 17th Street. 17 people were robbed by three gunmen.
It wasn't the first church robbery in Little Rock, sorry to say. I can recall several over the years, including one during a Sunday service at a small church just off W. 12th street near the former Highland Park public housing project. This was in 1973 or 1974, I think. (No Internet links for handy reference then.) I covered it for the Gazette. Seems like the organist kept playing as robbers moved through the room gathering valuables.
