Church Shootout In Colorado Leave Pastor’s Mother Dead

The mother of an Aurora church pastor was killed Sunday afternoon after a gunman opened fire at The Destiny Center at 10686 East Bethany Drive around 3 p.m.

According to church representative Yolanda Marant, someone ran inside the church and yelled for the others to “get down” as the gunman, who was following the person, began firing.

Marant confirms that Pastor Delono Straham’s mother, 65-year-old Josephine Eccles, was shot and killed during the incident.

An off-duty Denver Police officer was at the church at the time of the shooting and confronted the suspect outside of the church, Marant told FOX31 Denver.

The gunman may have been involved in an earlier dispute, though police have not confirmed the shooter’s motive.

Aurora Police confirm the off-duty officer did shoot the suspect, who was then transported to the hospital where he died from his injuries.

The church posted the following statement of its Facebook page:

“Please keep Pastor Delono Straham, the Straham family and The Destiny Center in your prayers. Thank you!“

R.I.P. Josephine Eccles, this is ALL the way out of pocket! You can’t even praise the Lord nowadays without being worried about getting murked! SMDH
