‘I may not be a perfect man, but I’ll always be a family man’
Louisiana pastor has shot his wife twice in the abdomen before shooting himself infront of their children in a hotel room on Wednesday.
Pastor Danny Prenell Jr., 25, is the lead pastor at the Bright Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church in Pineville, Louisiana.
Before the incident at The Hampton Inn and suites in Mississippi, where they lodged, Pastor Danny Prenell Jr had reportedly posted the feeling about family in the Facebook.
His words: “’I may not be a perfect man, but I’ll always be a family man.”
Pastor Danny Prenell and his wife, Gabby, 27, lodged into The Hampton Inn and suites in Mississippi, USA on Wednesday afternoon with their three kids.
Daily Mail reported that not long after they lodged, at about 3:30pm, Pastor Danny shot his wife twice in the presence of the kids and turned the gun on himself, firing once.
The wife suffered some wounds at her abdomen and arm. She is presently at the ICU. Pastor Danny is also in the hospital but in a stable condition. No one knows the reason for the Pastor’s action, according to Daily Mail.
A week to the incident, he had also posted his wife on her birthday, calling her ‘my queen’ and ‘the woman that I love and owe my life to’.
When he is discharged from the hospital, he will be charged with multiple felonies.
Their children are now under the custody of The Child Protective Services.
Though Danny Prenell Jr’s condition has not been made public, a friend of his wife Gabby said that she was “still fighting” in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
