(RNS) — Three people, a Haitian man and an American couple who all worked for a Christian mission organization, were killed by gang members near Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on Thursday night (May 23). The group had reportedly been kidnapped earlier in the evening after leaving a youth event hosted at a church.

Natalie and Davy Lloyd moved from Oklahoma to Haiti in 2022 to work for Missions in Haiti Inc. The third person killed was the Haitian director of the organization, Jude Montis.

Davy’s parents, David and Alicia Lloyd, who founded the organization in 2000, shared the news of their death in a Facebook post around 2 a.m. Friday, saying the couple had been shot by gang members around 9 p.m.

“We are devastated,” wrote the couple in their post.

Natalie’s father, Missouri Representative Ben Baker (R), shared the news on Facebook with a picture of the couple, expressing his grief and asking for prayers.
“'My heart is broken in a thousand pieces,' Baker posted. 'I’ve never felt this kind of pain. Most of you know my daughter and son-in-law Davy and Natalie Lloyd are full time missionaries in Haiti. They were attacked by gangs this evening and were both killed. They went to Heaven together.'”
