UNION COUNTY, Fla. -- One day after 5 people were shot in Lake Butler, the community is rallying around faith. 

First Christian Church of Lake Butler is opening its doors at 6 p.m. to anyone who wants to pray for the victims of Saturday's tragedy. 

The Union County Sheriff's Office says that Marvin Pritchett, 80, and Rolando Gonzalez-Delgado, 28, were killed when 72-year-old Hubert Allen Jr. went on a shooting spree. 

Sheriff Whitehead, Pritchett's nephew, is taking the news hard. 

"Just unbelievable. So traumatic to the community. He meant so much to the community," he continued. 

At least two others were shot in the rampage and were transported to UF Health Shands Gainesville for treatment.
