The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team has been deployed to Kentucky following a deadly shooting involving law enforcement.
The evangelist group were sent to Allen after deputies responded to a domestic violence call and the suspect opened fire, killing two officers and a police dog.
Five others were injured.
“Law enforcement in Floyd County has suffered a tragic loss. Our hearts are heavy to hear about this deadly incident in Allen, Kentucky,” said Josh Holland, international director of the BG-RRT.
“We are sending our crisis-trained chaplains to comfort people, listen and grieve with them, pray with them and share God’s love with those who have been impacted by this horrific tragedy.”
Lance Storz, aged 49, was taken into custody following the incident, which took place on Thursday, 30th of June.
The scene was described as “pure hell” by Floyd County Sheriff John Hunt.
"They had no chance," he said.
Eventually, the suspect surrendered after negotiations that included his family members.
The crisis ministry was created by the son of Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
