Louisiana pastor shot and killed while preaching

by Leslie Holland, CNN

(CNN) — Bond is set at $1 million for a Louisiana man accused of shooting and killing a church pastor as he preached in Lake Charles, Louisiana on Friday night.

Calcasieu Parish sheriff’s deputies arrested 53-year-old Woodrow Karey and charged him with second-degree murder, after he called 911 and told the dispatcher what he had done, sheriff’s spokesperson Kim Myers said.

Witnesses told police that Karey walked into the Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center around 8:20 p.m. CT and shot Pastor Ronald Harris twice — the first time as he entered the church and then again at close range after Harris had fallen to the floor, Myers said.

Karey fled the scene on foot but later called the sheriff’s office and surrendered without incident, Myers said.

During his arrest, Karey directed the deputies to two guns he had discarded in a wooded area. One of the firearms was a shotgun and the other was a pistol, police said. Police have not said which weapon was used to kill the pastor.

Karey has no known criminal history and it’s not known what relationship he had to the pastor. The motive for the killing also is unknown, police said.
