Kumse was ambushed.

The thieves demanded the eggs and chased the priest as he ran away.

Just as the priest lost his footing and fell down, they fired multiple shots at him. The bullets did not strike the priest.

According to the Cuyahoga County prosecutor, the males then jumped into a stolen van nearby and fled from the scene.
