Sudanese Immigrant Shoots Up TN Church

While the mainstream media was broadcasting wall-to-wall coverage on the NFL protests, a Sundanese immigrant entered a predominately white church in Antioch, Tennessee, and started shooting the congregation, killing one woman and injuring others.

Nashville Police have identified the suspect of a mass shooting at a church Sunday morning as 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson.

Samson is being charged with murder and multiple counts of attempted murder in the attack that killed one and left at least seven other people injured at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, a town just south of Nashville, Tenn.

A Nashville Police Department spokesman said the shooter entered the church after 11 a.m. CST wearing a neoprene ski mask. One woman was shot in the parking lot before the shooter entered the church and opened fire on about 42 people still inside.

Thankfully, in this case, a good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun.

One church member, 22-year-old Caleb Engle, confronted the shooter before being pistol whipped in the face. Engle then went to his car to retrieve a gun, which he has under a concealed carry license. Engle returned to the church to confront the gunman again. The gunman shot himself in the face when the man returned, possibly by accident.

It is my sincere hope Samson is given the death penalty, and it is delivered slowly and painfully.

  1. He shot himself in the face and survived. Lousy aim! At least this way, the victims will get justice. One more reason for the “travel ban”…extreme vetting of those entering this country.


  2. Metoo – Absolutely. The POS shot the woman in the back, and allegedly rolled her over and shot her in the face. This animal needs to be put down.

    Cathy – He could be the new head of the NFL Players Association.


  3. I seldom say a thing about firearms publicly, but should this guy come to my church, I and others would not be going to our cars for a firearm. He would be dropping in his tracks very quickly. That said, the good guy there should be given a medal.


  4. Wonder if this Muslim bodybuilder was on steroids–every congregation should have a designated firearm carrier…and every congregation should be instructed to throw everything they can get their hands on at the shooter…if he’s too busy dodging hymnals, someone might have a chance to get to him…


  5. TXNick – Oh, most definitely.

    Doc – Absolutely. Hymnals, pocketbooks, chalices…

    Toothy – With the Obama hacks still cluttering the DoJ? Don’t hold your breath.
