Police probing Atlanta pastor's stabbing death

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - The neighbors of an Atlanta pastor who was found fatally stabbed say they're shocked to learn of the man's death.

Atlanta police say they were responding to a call about a person down in northwest Atlanta Sunday afternoon when they found a man inside a house who was lying dead on the floor.

Neighbors told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/JEithR ) the victim, Rev. Otis Byrd, preached at God's Anointed Missionary Baptist Church. Members of his congregation told the newspaper they went to his house when he didn't show up for Sunday service.

Police say no arrests have been made.
