A pastor's daughter, 27-year-old Renisha Ebony Lee, was shot and killed during a shooting Sunday in Orlando, Florida.

Stevelleo Stovall, pastor and anti-violence activist, says he and his wife "got a call that parent wants to have—no parent," reports WFTV. "Now it's me. It's me and my wife."

Police received a call around 6 p.m. Sunday about aggravated battery in the Palms Mobile Home Park, according to Fox News. When police arrived, they found Lee shot in her home. Lee was rushed to the hospital, where she died from her wounds.

"I've been in [that hospital] and talked to so many families, but now, here it is that I got to talk to my own wife," Stovall says. "I got to be the one to tell my wife that, look, Renisha died. She didn't make it. She's gone. We can't do nothing but call on the Lord, call on Jesus—that's been my strength, Jesus."

Stovall, who pastors a Full Gospel church called God Is Able Outreach, has a reputation for convincing felons to turn themselves in. He now pleads with his daughter's killer to do just that.

"I pray to God that you just turn yourself in," he says. "Please, please, bring us some peace. Bring us some peace because there's no way in the world a beautiful young lady like that should've been killed. And the way she was killed."

Officials have not yet released information regarding a motive. Witness and family of Lee say she was likely an unintended victim in the shooting.

As of Monday, Feb. 17, Police are offering up to $5,000 for anyone who has information about Lee's death.
