This is such a sad tragedy, and, it appears that the street committee was right, Floyd Palmer did spend time in an institution back in Maryland for a similar incident.  Thank you street committee and do please keep the tips coming.

The Church Lady will continue to post updates on this story as it unfolds and remember, we have to protect the Kingdom at all cost which now includes having armed police guards on the premises at all times.  Pastors, beware and get back ground checks on all your employees, it may be costly but  could also save lives!

Atlanta’s Channel 2’s Eric Philips  reported that as Creflo  Dollar told the congregation that he took the loss personally, even joking at one point that he knew McDowell when he was skinny and that he performed the wedding ceremony for McDowell and his wife.

Creflo Dollar called it a tragedy but told his congregation he wanted to drill home three main points: God is good, heaven is real and to be absent from the body is to be present with the lord.

“While I was in my morning briefing I got a report that some shots took place over here in the chapel,” Dollar told his followers Wednesday night.

Creflo Dollar was candid with his congregation as he explained how he learned of the shooting in the chapel Wednesday morning, and the personal sense of loss surrounding the death of McDowell.

“One of our very faithful, loving, kind servant , volunteer,” Dollar said.

Dollar’s entire message Wednesday centered on the violence that erupted in the chapel of World Changers Church hours earlier.

“That’s not God’s will for a husband to be taken away from his wife and family. That’s not God’s will,” Dollar said.

Dollar said this night, it was important for him to feed his congregation the word of God and to encourage them.

Those that Philips spoke with said they felt encouraged.

“It was awesome, graceful message for a graceful man of God,” said church member Tara Hannon.

“My condolences go to the family, but everything will be all right,” Gary McClinton told Philips.

Dollar said the church will pray for and support the McDowell family any way it can, including financially.

He added that it’s important for the church to pray for the alleged shooter and his family as well.


‘He was a good man’
Friends and family have been gathering at the home of Greg McDowell in Union City since the shooting was reported Wednesday morning.

Channel 2’s Erin Coleman was there as dozens of people stopped by, telling her McDowell was a devoted husband and father.

“He has boys that he’s raising that he loved dearly, spends a tremendous amount of time with them he would be considered the model dad,” the Rev. Ken Terry with World Changers church said, speaking on behalf of the McDowell family. “For this to happen is just devastating. We all are distraught by it. We’re trying to show our comfort, our love, our support.”

McDowell was a long-time member at World Changers and was leading prayer when he was gunned down there Wednesday morning.

“Greg is a great guy. We’ve known him for years, since he was almost a little kid,” Terry said.

Neighbors who knew McDowell said he was always friendly and always smiled and waved.

“I feel terrible about it — I mean, he was a good man,” neighbor Anna Hall said.

“On the weekends they’d be out there with their kids, cut the grass, they’d wash their car in the driveway. Seemed like a normal, happy family,” neighbor Marlene Guice said.


U.S. marshals go to suspect’s apartment 

Neighbors were shocked when they found out Floyd Palmer was suspected in the shooting at World Changers Church.

Channel 2’s Shae Rozzi was at the Reserve at Garden Lake Apartments in Riverdale when U.S. marshals went to Palmer’s apartment looking for him.

They showed up just before 3 p.m., knocking on his door, but no one answered.

The marshals tipped off Rozzi that investigators had tracked Palmer to Lenox Square.

Neighbors couldn’t believe it was their neighbor.

“That is interesting because he didn’t pull off that type of person to me when I met him. Just a nice, cool neighbor, somebody to watch out for us, around us. I would never guess that,” neighbor Hoover Sirmans said.

Rozzi showed another neighbor Palmer’s picture, trying to get some details about the man.

“Do you know this man? Have you ever seen him before?” Rozzi asked Jarvis White.

“No I haven’t,” White answered.

“This is the man that authorities are looking for in the deadly shooting at World Changers Church,” Rozzi said.

“He’s my neighbor?” White said.

“That’s what we’re being told,” Rozzi answered.

Marshals told Rozzi they were getting ready to tape off the area as an active crime scene to search Palmer’s apartment Wednesday night.

As soon as Fulton County Police named Floyd Palmer as a suspect, Channel 2 Action News started digging into his background.

Wednesday afternoon Channel 2’s Aaron Diamant learned Palmer is from Maryland.

In 2001, while living in Baltimore, Maryland, Circuit Court records show Palmer was arrested and charged with attempted murder, assault and two gun charges.

In 2004, the more serious charges were dropped when Palmer pleaded guilty to second degree assault and carrying a handgun.

Channel 2 Action News is still working to get more details about the circumstances surrounding the Maryland case.
