COLLEGE PARK, Ga. (AP) — Police say one person was critically wounded when a gunman opened fire inside the chapel of a Georgia megachurch just south of Atlanta.
Fulton County police Cpl. Kay Lester says the suspect got away in a vehicle, and was still at large around 11 a.m. Wednesday after the shooting at World Changers Church International.
Lester said she didn’t know how many shots were fired. She said the church holds services on Wednesday mornings, but she did not know whether the service had started or how many people were inside during the gunfire.
The church is one of the nation’s largest. It is led by the Rev. Creflo Dollar, its founder and senior pastor, but there was no indication that he was injured.
A church spokeswoman could not immediately be reached.
