In what is being viewed as a tragedy of minuscule proportions tonight, The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith has been shot down in a hail of bullets. The incident occurred earlier this evening at approximately 7:32 PM (PST) when a deranged fan of The Brick Testament fired a fully loaded N-Strike Firefly REV-8 at Smith from close range, hitting him multiple times in the upper torso and neck. A photo (inset) snapped by longtime girlfriend Lila Tene just milliseconds before the impact captures a look of resigned acceptance on Smith’s face.
