Gwatney passed away at the hospital. Evidently the man who shot him was upset over losing his job..If you're not part of the solution,
you're part of the problem.

However, they said that moments after the shooting he pointed a handgun at the building manager at the nearby the Arkansas Baptist headquarters. He told the manager "I lost my job," said Dan Jordan, a Baptist convention official.
