A man accused of shooting and killing another man while he led a morning prayer service on the campus of World Changers Church International has been arrested.
The Atlanta mega-church was founded by Pastor Creflo Dollar. The shooting took place in a chapel on the church campus where a Bible study was underway at about 10 a.m.
Fulton County Officers cornered Floyd Palmer, 52, at a popular Atlanta mall several hours after the shooting incident on Wednesday. The former World Changers maintenance worker has a bond hearing at the Fulton County Jail Thursday.
The victim, church volunteer Greg McDowell, 39, died after being shot by the suspect at point-blank range. He was a member of the church production crew and a maintenance manager. He was also the father of two young children.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported this is the second time police have arrested Palmer for shooting a man.
Palmer pleaded guilty to shooting a man 10 years ago in a Baltimore mosque. Court records show he was committed to a mental health facility in Maryland after facing an attempted murder charge in that crime.
Dollar leads the World Changers Church International, which has an estimated 30,000 members.
