A handful of Crossroads Baptist Church employees were working late Sunday night — prepping offering money for the bank and getting ready for a youth trip in the morning — when things took a scary turn at the Dothan, Alabama, house of worship.

A man who police say was armed with knife approached a church member outside about 10:30 p.m. and forced him into the building, WTVY-TV reported.

The armed man robbed about $50 from the church member, AL.com reported, then attempted to rob a church staff member.

But the staffer had a handgun and hit the suspected robber with a single shot in the upper torso, AL.com added. Dothan Police Lt. Brian Smith told WDHN-TV the man who fired the shot was in his office at the time.

The suspect fled the church building and collapsed outside from his injuries, Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish told the Dothan Eagle.

Steffon Parreese Valentez Tolver was pronounced dead at 1:18 a.m. Monday, Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd told the paper.
