All of us are going to die, but none of us knows when or where. When you are a man of God, you don’t expect to be killed while preaching a service at church.
A pastor in Louisiana died this week while preaching to a crowd during a revival service. The suspect has been arrested, according to police. The shooting took place at Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles, Calcasieu Parish.
Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers says that the victim’s wife was one of the people at the event. Police don’t have a motive for the shooting just yet.
The pastor, Ronald J. Harris Sr., was shot twice by the man with the weapon. The shooting was at close range and the pastor was pronounced dead at the scene.
Woodrow Karey, 53, of Lake Charles is charged with second degree murder. His bail has been set at $1 million. He left the church, but shortly thereafter, called the police to turn himself in. He has no criminal history.
