On Saturday, a couple was having a special day; they were getting married in an outdoor ceremony. During the ceremony, a man and his companion (female) were swimming in the water near the area of the wedding ceremony.
While the wedding was ongoing the man in the water got angry and was making it known to the bride and groom. They finished saying their vows only to be shot by the man who had gone to his car and retreived a gun. The alledged shooter’s name is Patrick Paul Duvall.
Duvall also shot a wedding guest and a bystander. The bride and groom, Melissa and Mike Beavers are in the hospital in critical condition. The wedding guest is still in the hospital but the bystander was released. Duvall escaped in a stolen vehicle and was apprehended. The police were told by the wedding attendees that no one knew this Patrick Paul Duvall. The reason for his aggression seems to be unknown. I haven’t heard any word about his companion and her role in the attack.
When most people say their wedding vows…the phrase, til death do we part is usually included. How many of us stop and really think about that phrase? May God bless this couple and heal them completely so that they can continue on their life-long journey as a married couple.
