One of the robbers was said to have held the pastor from behind while another fired the shot
A pastor form South Florida was shot dead after he refused to hand over his fake gold chain to two men who tried to rob him as he left a local market.
67-year-old Kenneth Johnson, of Power of FaithDeliverance Ministries, was ambushed by two men.
According to witnesses the the robbers had targeted a fake gold chain the pastor had around his neck and they struggled over it before he was shot dead.
Johnson’s wife, Latoya, grieved over the loss of her husband after hearing the news, telling newsmen her world is now gone.
“He was my world. He was my world,” she said. “He was a good pastor, a kind, good-hearted man. Why would they do that? Why would they take his life? Just take the chain and go — go home.”
Johnson was described by the neighbours as a very nice and generous man.
