A Christian evangelist was shot in the head while preaching
Local police are searching for answers after a Christian evangelist was shot in the head while preaching on an Arizona street last week and is now hospitalized in a critical condition.
Hans Schmidt, the 26-year-old outreach director at Victory Chapel First Phoenix Church, was shot while street preaching on Wednesday night before service, according to a statement on the church’s website.
Gina Winn, the public information officer for the Glendale Police Department, said during a press conference that officers responded to a call for assistance regarding a male who arrived at a local hospital with a severe head injury.
“My husband was shot in the head yesterday while street preaching on the corner of 51st Ave and Peoria If anyone has any info, please contact 911,” she wrote in a Facebook post.
