A suspect pulled an SUV right up to the main entrance of Grace Covenant Church in Chantilly, Virginia on Saturday, ran into the building and then into a Bible study being led by a church pastor, and attacked the pastor with a knife before being subdued by church members.

At least four people were injured in the attack, including a local police chief who was attending the Bible study when the stabbing occurred, as well as the pastor who was the target of the attack.

Two other church members were injured while helping the police chief subdue the suspect. All were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

No information has been released about the suspect. The vehicle he or she drove to the church appears to be a luxury SUV:
