A man was shot and killed Wednesday morning at World Changers Church International in College Park, according to media reports. The megachurch is run by pastor Creflo Dollar.

Fulton County Police said the shooter is still on the loose, CNN reported. The victim's identity has not been released.

While the College Park location is the World Changers main church, a satellite is located off Jimmy Carter Boulevard in Peachtree Corners, near the city of Norcross. The church has 15 locations across multiple states and cities, including Athens and Marietta, according to its website.

Unrelated to the shooting, Dollar also was arrested in June on charges that he assaulted his teenage daughter. He was booked into the Fayette County Jail but was released on bond just hours later.
