A 16-year-old was arrested over the weekend after police accused him in a shooting that killed a metro Atlanta pastor.

Police in DeKalb County are still working to identify other suspects in the incident that led to the death of Kevin Nick, who was the pastor of Higher Dimensions Church International.

Church officials announced Nick’s death Saturday, saying although they are “heavy-hearted, we rejoice knowing he is at peace with his God.”

“Apostle Nick demonstrated a level of care and concern throughout his ministry,” the church’s overseer, Tremaine Dupree, said in a Facebook post. “He was certainly a general in the Kingdom and will be greatly missed by all whose life he so fervently touched.”

Nick was found dead inside of his SUV in a Decatur neighborhood just after 7:30 p.m. Friday, police said.
