  • COLLEGE PARK, Ga. (AP) — The pastor of a Georgia megachurch is seeking to raise nearly a quarter of a million dollars to help a church volunteer who was gunned down inside a chapel.

    The Rev. Creflo Dollar on Sunday told members of World Changers Church International that the goal is to raise $234,000 for the family of 39-year-old Greg McDowell.

    Police say Floyd Palmer calmly walked into a chapel on the church campus Wednesday, approached McDowell as he led a prayer service and shot him to death. Palmer has been charged with murder. His lawyer didn't returned phone calls from The Associated Press.

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Dollar said the church aims to erase all debts for McDowell's family, and urged congregation members to "show the world the power of a megachurch."
