Megachurch pastor Rick Warren said he prayed for the victims and families of the Washington Naval Yard shootings the moment he heard about it.
"When I heard about those deaths, at the naval yard, the first thing I did was get down on my knees and pray for those families, of the victims, those who died, and those who are wounded," Warren told CNN's Piers Morgan in an interview to air Tuesday. "My heart went out to them."
Warren lost his 27-year-old son, Matthew, to a gun-inflicted suicide just after Easter this year. He took 17 weeks away from the pulpit of his 20,000-member church before returning to preach a series titled, "How to get through what you’re going through."
Warren is also a best-selling author.
