(Newser) – A shooter killed one person inside a megachurch near Atlanta this morning, police say. The suspect is still at large after fleeing the World Changers Church International, reports MyFoxAtlanta. The victim has not been identified, but police say it was a volunteer staffer who was leading a prayer service at the time. They have identified the suspect as former church employee Floyd Palmer. The church is run by Creflo Dollar, who made headlines in June when he was charged with physically assaulting his teen daughter.

Another black-on-black killing. This is a national scandal. Maybe Øbyango can use his charisma to influence the black community once Romney is sworn in. Do somethin' nice for the brothas, dass rite.

Killing worshipers is cowardly and hateful. I don't care if they were worshiping at the Church of Satan -- hate is hate.

Murder and teen abuse. Think I'll stay home next Sunday morning.
