BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - A trust fund has been established to assist the widow and two young children of a slain Bradenton pastor.

James “Tripp” Battle was one of three people killed Thursday. Authorities say he was shot multiple times in the courtyard of Bayshore Baptist Church. Two women - Amber Avalos and Denise Potter - were found dead a short time later in a Bradenton home.

Deputies arrested 33-year-old Andres Avalos on three counts of second-degree murder.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1z5R3pQ ) reports money needed by the family will be taken from the account on a case-by-case basis after a review by its two trustees. Donations can be sent to the Tripp Battle Memorial Trust in care of the Greene, Hamrick Law Firm, 601, 12th St. W., Bradenton, FL 34205.
