A Louisiana pastor was fatally shot while he giving a sermon Friday night during a revival service, police said.

The Rev. Ronald J. Harris Sr. was pronounced dead at the scene at Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles, La., The Associated Press reported.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said the suspect walked into the church and shot the pastor “as he was preaching.”

Police arrested 53-year-old Woodrow Karey Jr. of Lake Charles for second-degree murder, the report said.
