Church Pastor Shoots His Estranged Son-in-Law to Protect His Daughter
|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||1||Shots Fired:||Unknown|
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, restraining orders are just pieces of paper that aren’t going to do much good against determined criminals.
In this case, a church pastor had to use deadly force in order to protect his daughter from her estranged husband.
The pastor’s daughter and her husband had recently separated, and she was living with her parents.
It’s unclear why, but the daughter took out a restraining order against her estranged husband just days before he attempted to break into the home of her parents.
The girl’s father, in defense of his home and family, shot and killed the husband.
According to WRAL,
No charges had been filed against Pat Chisenhall as of Monday, authorities said.
Property records show that Chisenhall and his wife own the home at the address where Saturday’s shooting occurred.
Members of the Abundant Life Worship Center in Angier, which Chisenhall founded 25 years ago, said they were “heartbroken” but that their pastor acted in self-defense.
