A pastor accused of shooting a teenager in Atlanta on Saturday has been denied bond, reports the AJC.
Alex Williams is accused of shooting a 13-year-old with a handgun after the teen allegedly threw rocks at the pastor’s van, shattering the rear windshield.
The shooting victim was in stable condition after the incident in southwest Atlanta, and Williams was under arrest, charged with aggravated assault.
Williams is the pastor of the Mechanicsville United Church of God in Christ on McDaniel Street. He runs the church out of his home.
The pastor’s daughter, Yvonne Williams, told the AJC that her father has endured numerous burglaries at his home and was recently the victim of arson.
Williams’ next court date is May 23rd at 9 a.m. in the Fulton County Courthouse.
