Pastor Ryan Chandler, the pastor of The Connecting Center and motivational speaker, in Ahoskie, North Carolina, died on May 5.
He was also noted to be a social media influencer and lead servant at Let’s Clear The Air.
Reportedly, the pastor/prophet, 35, picked up a hitchhiker as he drove down the street. Apparently, there was some sort of dispute. Then, the hitchhiker pulled out a revolver and fatally shot Chandler in the head. It seems as though the incident happened at a gas station.
“The family is unable to recover the automobile or any of his personal possessions. It is because it is a crime,” one source stated.
The day before he was killed, Chandler had shared a live video. He was upset after a woman asked if he was gay. He stated that he wasn’t gay but had a few sexual indiscretions.
Chandler was originally from Chicago, IL. He attended Dallas College Richland Campus and the University of Phoenix.
Reports have stated that Rodney Ward, 24, has been taken into custody in relation to Chandler’s death.
