A homeless man is accused of interrupting a church service with a rant about killing police Sunday, two days after a gunman killed a Cincinnati police officer in a "suicide by cop" ambush.

Wash Samuels, 53, is held on a disorderly conduct charge at the Hamilton County jail.

According to court records, police arrested him when he walked shirtless into a church during services and began to shout about "killing police."

Officer Sonny Kim, a 27-year veteran of the Cincinnati Police Department, was gunned down in Madisonville Friday morning when he responded to a report of a gunman in the street acting erratically. 

Police officials say the gunman ambushed the officer in an apparent "suicide by cop."

Another man, Grady Carter, 53, was arrested over the weekend and charged with threatening to "shoot a cop."
