Pastor Calls for Justice After Charges Dropped Against Attacker

The 71-year-old Tennessee pastor, Clemmie Livingston Jr., who was shot in the face by carjackers outside his church in February, is speaking out after the Shelby County district attorney’s office dropped several charges against a suspect in the attack that almost cost him his life.

According to WREG, 18-year-old R’shunio Greer was charged with robbery and theft of property; he is also facing several gun possession charges. R’shunio was tied to Livingston’s shooting after investigators reportedly found pictures of  Greer in a car that was shot. Greer also allegedly admitted to driving away from the scene of the shooting.

According to FOX 13, the prosecutors recently dismissed all charges against Greer except theft of property because the witness did not show up.

71-year-old Tennessee pastor, Clemmie Livingston Jr is the pastor of the Zionfield Baptist church.

In Livingston’s statement, he told the news outlet that the claim made up by prosecutors for dismissing the charges against the suspect cannot be true because he was a witness and he showed up to the court for the hearing of the case.

“I was stunned when they said there were not any witnesses there, knowing that we were there, Livingston said.”That was the thing that shocked me.”

Livingston was shot just after 9 a.m. on February 25th as he came out of his church before the start of his Sunday morning service. A spokesperson for the DA’s office confirmed with FOX 13 that witnesses were present for Greer’s hearing despite their previous statement, but noted that the theft charge against the suspect will still be reviewed by a grand jury.

He further stated that, though he desires to see his attackers rehabilitated, he will be praying that the police track down the other suspects involved in his shooting.

The Memphis pastor faced life-threatening injuries after he was shot and is refusing to give up hope despite the charges dropped against Greer being dismissed.
