LAKE CHARLES — A Louisiana pastor has been shot and killed during a nighttime revival service, and authorities say a suspect has been arrested.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers says the shooting occurred about 8:20 p.m. Friday at Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles.

Myers says a gunman walked into the church and shot Pastor Ronald J. Harris Sr. "as he was preaching." Harris was pronounced dead at the scene.

Myers says 53-year-old Woodrow Karey of Lake Charles is charged with second-degree murder and was held in the parish jail Saturday.

Myers says authorities are investigating and have not determined a motive for the shooting.
