Hello. This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC Newsroom. James Bertrand, the pastor known for the "Just for Jesus" rallies"... Is in jail in Houston after Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Deputies say he bought a car with a suspended drivers license. The dealership claims Bertrand refused to give the car back. The Houston Police Department located the car and Bertrand... and arrested him.

And we were at the funeral. We'll talk to local religious leaders who are using these tragic events as a way to bring the community together to stop the violence.
