WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A Winston-Salem pastor is recovering after being shot in the head while inside his church.
Steve Smith, a pastor at New Story Church on Waughtown Street in Winston-Salem, had just finished a Monday night service.
An employee told FOX8 there were about 80 to 100 people inside the church at the time.
Police say around 8 p.m., a disturbance broke out between a group of men across the street from the church. One of the men pulled out a firearm and fired, they said.
“The service had just ended and we were on the way out of the church,” said Robert Thomason, who identified himself as a witness and member of the church.
