I just caught wind of this this morning. A gunman has shot and killed a man leading a prayer meeting at Creflo Dollar’s World Changers Church yesterday. According to initial reports, the gunman walked in dressed in a suit, and opened fire yesterday morning on a man who was leading a prayer meeting. Here is a video of the initial report.

Later it turns out, police named the suspect as 52 yr old Floyd Palmer. Palmer is a former employee at World Changers Church as a maintenance man. He walked up to Greg McDowell, age 39, and shot him at point blank range. There were about 25 people at the prayer meeting and immediately those attending recognized the shooter.
Here is another video of the incident.

A few hours later, Palmer was apprehended at a Macy’s department store at a mall in the Buckhead area of Atlanta.
Creflo Dollar, who was not at the prayer service, preached a message last night on continuing to have faith in God in the midst of tragedy. There has been no official comment from Pastor Dollar on the incident.
Regardless of your feelings towards Creflo Dollar, we need to pray for the family of Greg McDowell.
