Pastor Shot…During Sermon

28 Sep

Yeah…There is something wrong in this country…

And it isn’t just the medically “crazy” people.

When you were talking about “Some of our Church Members,,,” You weren’t talking about me, were you Rev?

Pastor Ronald J. Harris Sr. Shot, Killed While Preaching During Church Service In Lake Charles Louisiana

A Louisiana pastor was fatally shot as he preached to a crowd of more than 60 during a revival service Friday night, and a suspect has been arrested, law enforcement officials said.

The shooting occurred about 8:20 p.m. Friday at Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Saturday. Sixty-five people were inside at the time, including the victim’s wife, Chief Deputy Stitch Guillory said.

Deputies have no information on a motive or on whether the two men knew each other, Myers said.

A gunman walked into the church and shot Pastor Ronald J. Harris Sr. “as he was preaching,” Myers said. Harris was pronounced dead at the scene.

Woodrow Karey, 53, of Lake Charles is charged with second-degree murder and was held in the parish jail Saturday, Myers said. Meyers said Karey’s bond has been set at $1 million.

The gunman fled the church, but Myers said Karey called the Sheriff’s Office and surrendered without incident.

Myers added Saturday that deputies were busy “interviewing everybody who was there at the church.”

Family members who answered the telephone Saturday at the Harris home in Lake Charles said there would be no comment. There was no answer at a telephone listing for Karey or at Tabernacle of Praise.

    My Community is in total shock over this shooting. The shooter is the nicest person you will ever meet, something mighty bad had to have happened for this to happen.
