Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer has urged believers to join her in prayer after a teenage member Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, led by her father, Pastor Tony Evans, was fatally shot. 

In a tweet that was later shared by Evans, Shirer, head of Going Beyond Ministries, revealed that 17-year-old Tony Evans Jr. — who she clarified was not related to her — was killed on Sunday.

“Family, would you please pray for the family of @TonyEvansJr1 — a talented 17-year-old athlete who was a member of our church. He was killed this past Sunday. He had a promising future at the University of Wyoming this fall. I can only imagine this devastation for his parents. Jesus, mercy,” she wrote.
