Calcasieu: Pastor Shot Dead While Preaching
A pastor has been shot dead during a church service in Calcasieu, Louisiana.
Police said a gunman walked into the Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles, and shot Pastor Ronald J Harris Sr "as he was preaching".
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, said Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers.
She said the shooting took place at 8.20 on Friday night and a man was arrested shortly afterwards.
Woodrow Karey, 53, from the Lake Charles area, has been charged with second degree murder, and is being held in custody.
Calcasieu Parish Chief Deputy Stitch Guillory said there were 65 witnesses inside the church at the time of the shooting, including the victim's wife.
"At this point, we're just trying to piece together as much information as we can, and find out what the cause of this was," he said.
