A community is grieving after a pastor at Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church in Tennessee was killed by his alleged mistress, WREG reports.
A police report states that police were called to the Meridian Place Apartments in Memphis, Tennessee after receiving calls from residents that they heard gunshots and screams.
Pastor Brodes Perry and his wife were discovered shot from gunshot wounds. At the scene, the alleged shooter, Latoshia Daniels, was still alarmed and refused to surrender to police.
Pastor Perry’s wife told authorities that Daniels showed up at their home. She was familiar with Daniels, and agreed to let her inside of the house. After the visit, she was leading the suspect out the door, when Daniels allegedly pulled a gun out screaming “You broke my heart!” at the Pastor.
According to police, Daniels started shooting at Pastor Perry, and when his wife tried to assist her injured husband, she was shot in the shoulder.
The First Lady said she didn’t know of an affair happening between Daniels and her husband, but told police it was a possibility.
Pastor Perry later died at the hospital.
The standoff between Daniels and police was tense. Authorities say that as they tried to take her into custody she got away and took off running. Police had to force her on the ground to handcuff her and take her into custody.
Daniels has been charged with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, police assault and resisting arrest.
