Detroit pastor, father killed after asking neighbors to quiet down
Young Tatiana Kirby cried until she couldn’t cry anymore last Monday night after an angry man attending a party next door pumped several bullets into the body of her father, Pastor Tim Kirby, 46, after he asked them to turn down the music.
“It was devastating. I cried for a minute, and then it was like I couldn’t cry no more,” said his daughter, Tatiana Kirby. “He was a good father. He was always a caring person. Every Sunday we were always in church. He always made sure we had clothes, good clothes on our backs, food on the table.”
“He was a good father. He was always a caring person. Every Sunday we were always in church. He always made sure we had clothes, good clothes on our backs, food on the table,” she said.
According to local police, Kirby’s neighbors were hosting a big party complete with loud music and screaming when he left his apartment to ask them to tone down the noise.
Upset by the pastor’s request, a group of men turned the encounter into a full blown confrontation and began shouting at him. One of them got so incensed during the dispute that he shot the man of God three times. His lifeless body was left to stain the cement outside his apartment building while his shocked family and friends descended into mourning.
