A fourth American missionary has died (March 22) from a drive-by shooting attack in Mosul on Monday that killed three other Christian relief workers and wounded a companion. According to the Southern Baptist International Mission Board (SBIMB), David McDonnall, 28, of Rowlett, Texas, died Tuesday. McDonnall's wife Carrie, 26, who was wounded, remains in critical, but stable condition.Last week the SBIMB identified the dead as Larry T. Elliott, 60; his wife, Jean Dover Elliott, 58, both of Cary, N.C.; and Karen Denise Watson, 38, of Bakersfield, Calif.
