LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A pastor was shot and killed during a church service on Friday night in Calcasieu.

According to Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers, it happened around 8:20 p.m. at the Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center at 307 Deshotel Lane in Lake Charles.

Myers said Pastor Ronald J. Harris Sr. was shot "as he was preaching."

Woodrow Karey Jr., 53, of Lake Charles, is accused of walking into the church and shooting Harris.

Myers said Harris, of Lake Charles, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Myers said Karey shot Harris with a shotgun twice, once when he walked into the church and a second time when Harris fell to the floor. Myers said Karey walked up to him and shot him at close range.

Karey fled on foot, Myers said, but called the Sheriff's Office and surrendered without incident.

A Calcasieu Correctional Center booking report indicates his location of arrest was Opelousas Street/Deshotel Lane.

Here’s their web site.

I couldn’t find information about the pastor, but the church seems to encourage both black and white membership, if this website is representative.

The shooter is not, but do not know if the victim was or not. They did say, the motive was unknown, which is sometimes a dead give away, but who knows for sure?

Don't know, not that it matters. Looks like a worship leader here. From their website. Prayers.

Shot with an AR 15 shotgun./s/

Shotguns at close range leave a helluva mess.

I just wondered if it was a black on white since there has been a rash of that lately.

Good catch! Kind of makes you wonder if it’s meant literally, or a grammatical error. Hmmm

The fact he shot him and then shot him again when he was down speaks to a crime of passion...

diddling

That actually means playing with yourself...

What I meant to say was the preacher was boinking his wife...

Clear enough...

Didling can be a sin depending on whom your didling..

I'm cynical enough that I instantly suspected the pastor of sleeping with the shooter's wife, latest girlfriend, or daughter [son, perhaps?]. There's a reason for this one.

I suspect there is at least one thing not “Welcome(d) under God’s Roof.”

If the pastor was screwing the shooter’s wife or daughter, I’d go with involuntary manslaughter, if not an acquittal.
