Don’t you love a true crime story with a happy ending? A dead perp made for a happy ending in Dothan.
Dothan, Alabama is a small city near the Gulf of Mexico, not far from the Florida panhandle.
Tolver was undoubtedly a good boy. Him mama gon’ say he beez an aspiring rapper who was turning his life around by pursuing the study of rocket science.
A staff member of a Dothan church shot and killed a man who robbed him and another parishioner inside the church on Sunday night, police said.
Dothan police found Steffon Parreese Valentez Tolver, 26, dead of a gunshot wound in the parking lot of the Crossroads Baptist Church 2574 Westgate Parkway at around 10:34 p.m., police said.
Police said Tolver had entered the back door of the church and robbed a parishioner of about $50.
When Tolver then attempted to rob a staff member of the church, the staff member fired his handgun once, hitting Tolver in the upper torso. Tolver ran out the back door of the church and into the parking lot where he died.
No other details were immediately available.
Our deceased gentleman of color should have picked a Unitarian church to rob. He’d be alive today if he knew a little more about religious denominations. Unitarians would have debated theology with him instead of shooting him.
