The Rev. Dr. Augustus Sealy, who leads the First Church of the Nazarene on Capitol Avenue, was injured at about 6:30 a.m. Sunday in a drive-by shooting, police said.
Sealy, 54, was planting small flags in the church’s lawn at 932 Capitol Ave. in honor of Memorial Day. He was shot in the leg and shoulder.
A witness identified a black car traveling west on Capitol Avenue, slowing as it passed the victim, and heard five gunshots. Seven shell casings were found on the scene, police said.
Dr. Sharon Sealy, his wife, usually spends the weekends at the parsonage in the Parkville neighborhood, and the couple live in Shrewsbury, Mass., during the week. Augustus Sealy has a private counseling practice in Massachusetts.
