Bishop and wife wounded in shooting

- An Orlando-area bishop and his wife are recovering after being wounded at a business they own together at the Washington Shores Shopping Center in West Orlando.  Police officers responded to Hardemon's Clean Cut Greens , at 3619 Columbia Street early Wednesday evening.  Upon arrival, they found Bishop Harold Lee Hardemon Jr., of New Beginnings Worship Prophetic Ministries, and his wife suffering from gunshot wounds.

"Both victims were conscious, talking and transported to a local hospital for treatment. Doctors are treating both victims and have not provided medical updates," said Lt. Miguel Garcia with the Orlando Police Department.

"He's doing pretty good , his wife is doing pretty good, so that's the only thing we can hope and pray," said Hardemon's father, Bishop Harold Hardemon Sr.  "I just feel and believe that God is going to bring him through it."
Investigators are not releasing what happened prior to the shooting, and while they have found the suspect vehicle, they have not said if they have anyone in custody.
