The Riverdale man charged with shooting and killing Gregory McDowell at Creflo Dollar’s World Changers Church International faced a judge for the first time today. During the probable cause hearing, police investigators said McDowell was shot 12 times.
Floyd Palmer killed McDowell on October 24 during a prayer meeting. McDowell was Palmer’s supervisor.
Police also learned that Palmer had applied, but was rejected for permits to buy two handguns at a Savannah gun show in August. Palmer’s application was rejected after it was discovered that he falsified some information relating to previous mental health issues.
