Tragedy struck in Cleveland, Ohio, over the weekend when a local Salvation Army worker was shot dead while clutching his Bible—a horrific crime that reportedly unfolded while he was sharing the gospel with the assailant.
Jared Plesec, 21, was found shot in the head on Saturday morning in the lobby of his apartment complex, with police alleging that a 27-year-old man named William Jones is responsible, WKYC-TV reported.
Plesec, who has worked as a Bible study teacher for the Salvation Army for a few years, was reportedly wearing his uniform when he was killed and was on his way to volunteer to collect money for the organization's annual Red Kettle campaign.
