Jesus Take The Wheel indeed! Creflo Dollar’s Atlanta church was the scene of a fatal shooting Wednesday morning.
According to Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:
A man shot Wednesday morning at World Changers Church International in College Park has died, according to Fulton County police.
Police confirmed earlier that one man was shot around 10:30 a.m. and transported in critical condition to South Fulton Hospital where he later died. Channel 2 Action News said the victim was a member of the church’s production crew.
Creflo Dollar is the pastor of the megachurch.
Police are looking for a suspect who left the scene of the church, which is located at 2500 Burdett Road. Police are looking for a black Subaru in connection with the shooting, which reportedly occurred in the chapel where the church hosts a Bible study every Wednesday.
Karen Webb, who had taken her mother to the church for Bible study, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that she was told the victim was shot six times.
“I brought my mother up here to go to church — every Wednesday she attends Bible study. As soon as we get here I’m told someone has been shot,” Webb said. “He was one of the praise leaders.” Webb said she was told the shooter was a 20-year member of the church.
Dollar started World Changers Ministries in 1986 with eight members, holding services in the cafeteria of a local elementary school, according to the church’s website. Its campus now occupies 81 acres, with services held in the 8,500-seat World Dome. Dollar is a regular on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.
And the suspect is still on the loose! Hide ya kids and hide ya wife for real. We hope they catch the responsible party ASAP.
Our condolences to the family of the victim.
