The pregnant wife of a pastor in Indiana has died after being shot in the head during a home invasion.
Amanda Blackburn, 28, was shot in her Indianapolis home as she tried to defend herself and her one-year-old son, Weston, from a burglar on Tuesday morning, police said. She was pronounced dead on Thursday.
Her husband, Resonate Church pastor Davey Blackburn was at the gym when the incident occurred and came home to find his wife wounded at about 8.30am.
The suspect is still on the loose and police are offering a $1,000 reward to anyone with information. Officers are still investigating the incident.
Three hours before Blackburn was found, a home close to the victim’s was burglarized and electronics and other valuables were taken, according to WTHR.
Police said it’s unclear if the break-in and the shooting are connected.
Friends and family told WYFF that Blackburn, along with her husband, had recently announced that she was 12 weeks pregnant with the couple’s second child.
Blackburn was the daughter of the lead pastor at First Baptist Church in Elkhart, Indiana. She and her husband moved from South Carolina to Indianapolis in 2012 to establish the independent church, Resonate Church.
Resonate Church posted a statement on Facebook mourning Blackburn’s death and hundreds of people on social media sent prayers toward the family, according to KHOU.
Davey Blackburn posted a statement on his church’s website thanking everyone for the support.
