Pastor Shot Dead During Church Service In South Africa

A pastor, Dwayne Gordon has been shot dead during a church service in Johannesburg, South Africa. The incident happened last week Friday as it was captured live on camera while the church service was going on.

The gunmen that killed the pastor fired so many shots which left other members of the congregation injured.

According to Police the gunmen were seen robbing some people in the church. They took some cell phones and other personal belongings. It is not yet clear if the motive of the incident was just robbery or if there was a motive.

Police spokesperson Dimakatso Nevhuhulwi said a case of murder and two counts of attempted murder are being investigated.

“The suspects fired shots and three people were injured. One of the victims who succumbed to his injuries was identified as the pastor of the church. The suspects robbed people off their cellphones and other belongings before fleeing the scene,” said Nevhuhulwi.

Congregants were seriously wounded

In a related incident about a year ago, a group of Christians who had gathered to pray in Diepsloot became armed robbery victims. The gunmen attacked the congregants and killed the pastor.

According to reports, two congregants were seriously injured during the horrendous ordeal.

News24 reported that the incident happened shortly before midnight. The report also indicated that 50 Christians were gathered at the church for an all-night prayer when the armed robbers launched the attack.

They reportedly got away with personal belongings such as phones and cash.

Three people, including the pastor, were shot during the attack. Eyewitnesses rushed them to the nearest health facility, but the pastor died upon arrival.
