Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) A man who suffered minor injuries in the fatal shootings at New Life Church in Colorado Springs a week ago was escorted off church grounds Sunday because church officials thought he was “volatile” and might be disruptive.

Fifty-nine-year-old Larry Bourbonnais left peacefully after having arrived to attend a service.

Senior Pastor Brady Boys says officials believed Bourbonnais was “volatile,” and they didn't want the services to be disrupted.

Bourbonnais told a Colorado Springs television station that New Life officials were unhappy over his criticism of another security guard whom Bourbonnais said would not confront the gunman.

Boyd said church officials would contact Bourbonnais to try to reach an “amicable” resolution.

Twenty-four-year-old Matthew Murray killed two people and Injured three others at the church December 9th before being taken down by a security guard's bullets.

Murray then turned his own gun on himself.
