The man that shot an East Texas pastor with his own gun is also a suspect in two other shooting incidents, according to multiple reports.

Mytrez Woolen, 21, was arrested and charged capital murder along with other charges after he shot and killed Pastor Mark Allen McWilliams at the Starrville Methodist Church near Winona on Sunday morning.

Woolen is being held in the Smith County jail on a $3.5 million bond.

Woolen shot and killed the pastor before he shot at his wife but missed and shot a third person. Those injuries were non-life threatening.

Woolen stole a truck from the parking lot in an attempt to flee but the vehicle had OnStar and was disabled after a short chase.

“I’m glad he’s in custody,” Pritchard said. “I think that justice should be passed on to him, and he should receive the same justice he gave to Mark.”

The Smith County sheriff says he’s since learned Woolen is also the suspect in a recent drive-by shooting and another shooting incident in nearby Marshall, according to FOX 4.
