Pastor shot twice in La. killing
LAKE CHARLES - A 53-year-old man with no known criminal history is being held in lieu of $1 million bond, accused of shooting and killing a preacher during a revival service in southwest Louisiana.
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office says Woodrow Karey, of Lake Charles, surrendered minutes after Ronald Harris was shot in front of 65 worshippers Friday night in the Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center. Karey has been booked on a second-degree murder charge.
Sheriff's office spokeswoman Kim Myers says Karey told deputies where to find a shotgun and a .22-caliber pistol he had left in nearby woods.
Myers says Harris was shot twice with a shotgun: the first time at close range and again after he was down.
She says deputies don't know a motive or whether the two men knew each other.
