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

The shooting occurred at about 8:20 p.m.on a Friday at Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles,  according to Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office. Sixty-five people were inside at the time, including the victim’s wife. Pastor Ronald J. Harris Sr. was shot twice by the gunman. The man went into the church while Harris was preaching and “walked up to him and shot him at close range,” according to police records. The suspect shot him again when Harris fell to the floor.

The pastor was pronounced dead at the scene.

Woodrow Karey, 53, of Lake Charles was later charged with second-degree murder and was held in the parish jail following the shooting.  The gunman left the church, but Karey called the sheriff’s office and surrendered.
