The pastor of a Lexington church says his building has been shot at three times.

Pastor Everett Hobson Sr. of the Quinn Chapel AME says the latest shooting happened last Saturday overnight.

He says in each instance the building was empty.

Hobson says he's lobbying city and neighborhood leaders to start working together to end the violence in and around his church's neighborhood.

He feels much of the problem is that many are facing economic hardship and have nowhere else to turn but to crime.

Hobson says if everyone works together and tries to help those less fortunate, then the violence will end and the community will turn around.

Hobson says the shootings don't scare him and that he will continue to have services.
