ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Police say the brother of a prominent Atlanta minister has been fatally shot during a robbery at this home.

Authorities say 47-year-old Jerrick Jackson was shot multiple times early Tuesday as his fiancée watched.

Jackson was the younger brother of Gospel Tabernacle Cathedral founder and pastor, Bishop Wiley Jackson. In a statement, the pastor asked those responsible to surrender.

Police say Jerrick Jackson and his fiancée had just gotten home around 1 a.m. when they were approached by several men with guns. The men robbed Jackson and his fiancée outside and then ordered them inside the home. Police say Jackson and one suspect began to fight and then one suspect shot Jackson.

Police say they have some leads but no suspect had been named late Tuesday.
