Reports indicate the victim in a law enforcement shooting yesterday in downtown Toccoa is dead.
Multiple reports into AM 630 WNEG News have identified the victim as Pastor Jonathan Ayers of Shoal Creek Baptist Church of Lavonia or Hartwell.
Those same reports indicate he died last night.
The incident started Tuesday afternoon, prior to 3 p.m., according to Stephens County Sheriff Randy Shirley.
“We, the Stephens County Sheriff’s Office, the GBI, and the Toccoa Police Department are investigating an officer-involved shooting,” said Shirley. “The NCIS team was doing a covert drug operation and an individual that was involved in the drug transaction was shot. This occurred at the Shell station at Broad and Currahee streets, and the suspect fled and hit a tree with his car. The suspect is at Stephens County Hospital with a gunshot wound in the right upper abdomen area. He is conscious and alert.”
Again though this morning, reports indicate the victim, identified in multiple reports as Pastor Jonathan Ayers of Shoal Creek Baptist Church, has died from the wounds suffered in the incident.
AM 630 WNEG will provide more information on this story as it becomes available.
Details are sketchy at this point. I have friends that attend this church and I'll try to get more details.

The pastor was buying or selling drugs???
I hope I'm wrong.
Am I misreading this, or another poorly-written article from the media?

I hope its just a poorly written article. There are rumors going around right now but I'm waiting to hear from people who actually know what happened.
