One woman was killed and 6 wounded in a mass shooting at Burnette Chapel of Christ in Antioch, Tennessee on Sunday. Police identified a Muslim immigrant from Sudan as the shooter. Predictably, the news media is ignoring this story.
1. The Shooter, Emanuel Kidega Samson
Police say 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson, of Murfreesboro, pulled up to the church in a SUV just as services ended.
Wearing a neoprene half-mask and carrying 2 handguns, Samson exited the vehicle and shot dead Melanie Crow Smith, 39, as she walked to her car in the parking lot.
Police say Samson then entered the rear of the church and began randomly gunning down elderly men and women, including the church pastor, David Spann and his wife, Peggy.
All of the victims inside the church ranged in age from 60 to 85. Police say 42 congregants were still inside the church when Samson entered. The terrified congregants hid under church pews and in restrooms.
Police found additional weapons in Samson’s vehicle after the shootings.
Samson was medically cleared by doctors at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and discharged from the hospital on Sunday evening.
He was charged with one count of murder and held without bond. He faces multiple additional charges.
