Police say one person was critically wounded when a gunman opened fire inside the chapel of a Georgia megachurch just south of Atlanta.

Fulton County Police Cpl. Kay Lester says the suspect got away in a vehicle, and was still at large around 11 a.m. Wednesday after the shooting at World Changers Church International.

The church is one of the nation's largest. It is led by the Rev. Creflo Dollar, its founder and senior pastor. There was no indication that he was injured.

Lester said she didn't know how many shots were fired.

Church officials did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
