Prayer vigil held in support of pastor shot in his Newark home
A prayer vigil was held outside University Hospital Thursday night in support of a pastor who was shot in his home in Newark home last month.
Pastor Timothy Huff is fighting for his life after being shot on Aug. 24. Friends and family say they are praying for a breakthrough in his treatment.
“That’s all you have, is your faith in God…He didn’t say it was going to be easy, but He said He’d never leave us, nor forsake us and He’ll never put more you than you can bear,” says Delois Hudson-Huff, Huff’s wife.
Huff is a pastor at Green Pasture Baptist Church in East Orange.
Authorities say Huff confronted a group of young women who had smashed the windshield of his son’s car. He told the group he was calling the police, but before the police arrived officials say the two of the suspects shot at the pastor’s house. One of the bullets went into the home, striking the pastor in the chest.
News 12 has been told that Huff is stable but remains in critical condition. He had two more major surgeries Wednesday night. This is in addition to the three surgeries he previously underwent.
No arrests have been made. Anyone who might have information about the shooting is urged to contact Newark police.
