Pastor Shoots his Wife, and Himself In A Hotel Infront Of Three Children

Members of the Bright Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church in Pineville are shocked and saddened at the news that their lead pastor reportedly sh0t his wife in front of his three children before turning the gun on himself in Mississippi.

Twenty-five-year-old Danny Prenell Jr and his wife 27-year-old Gabby Prenell both survived the shooting and according to a Facebook post the husband is in stable condition while the wife is in critical condition in a Mississippi hospital. The shooting took place at a Hampton Inn hotel in McComb, Mississippi where the pastor and members of his congregation were attending a revival.

Church members met for their regular Friday prayer meeting and I spoke with a few of the deacons who were not ready to go on camera until they knew more details about the incident but they said that church members are devastated by the news and are in prayer for the family.

Marvin Marzett, Sr. lives close to the church and is astonished by the incident.
