An American missionary who had been working in Haiti for many years was fatally shot by gunmen in the impoverished country’s capital as she sat behind the wheel of her car on a residential street, colleagues and police said Monday.Haitian National Police spokesman Frantz Lerebours said the attackers also kidnapped a 4-year-old child from missionary Roberta Edwards’ car after shooting her at close range. It was not immediately clear if the child was one of the roughly 20 youngsters who received foster care at the children’s home that she ran in Port-au-Prince.”Investigators are working to find the killers and the kidnapped child,” said Lerebours, adding the incident occurred Saturday evening in the Croix-des-Bouquets district.The Estes Church of Christ, based in Henderson, Tennessee, said the missionary’s car was intentionally blocked Saturday evening by another motorist. Armed men got out of the car, fired into Edwards’ vehicle and killed her.
