Woodrow Karey has been charged in connection with the shooting death of Pastor Ronald J. Harris Sr. (Calcasieu Parish sheriff’s office)

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.
