A church volunteer was shot and killed at World Changers Church International on Oct. 24.

Investigators suspect 52-year-old Floyd Palmer of Riverdale, who, they said, entered a chapel on the church's campus and started shooting. Palmer is a former church employee who resigned in August, according to Fulton County spokeswoman Kay Lester.

Fulton County officials confirmed that the victim was a 39-year-old male church volunteer. Police have not yet released his name. Investigators say the victim was on stage and leading a prayer when he was shot at point-blank range. Lester said multiple shots were fired, but no one else was injured.

Police are still looking for Palmer, who they think fled the scene, possibly in a black Subaru station wagon with tinted windows. Lester said Palmer is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911.

The church is located on Burdett Road near Old National Highway in south Atlanta.
Pastor Creflo Dollar was not at the church during the shooting.
