Authorities said one woman was killed and seven others were wounded after a 26-year-old African-American man wearing a ski mask opened fire at a Tennessee church Sunday.
The gunman, who officials said shot himself and was taken to a hospital, opened fire at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, southeast of Nashville, just after 11 a.m. and fired multiple rounds, police said in a news conference. The Nashville Fire Department called the incident a mass casualty situation.
A church usher confronted the gunman at one point and was pistol-whipped, causing "significant injury around his head." He told police he then went to his own car, grabbed a pistol and headed back into the church. The gunman then shot himself.

I guess it is too soon to have author...
One fortunate aspect is that it was in the Nashville metro-area — since it was a mass-casualty incident.
Appears in Facebook pictures to be a church with multiple ethnic groups attending.
They should show his evil face.
They look like Americans to me. All of them.
Let me guess, another effing peace loving black Muslim
Shooter is a 25 year old black man, originally from the Sudan...named Emaunel K. Sampson. He currently lives in Murfreesboro, TN.
Here is his facebook page.
But if the roles were reversed and it was 98% black church and a white shooter, nobody would be claiming it was a multi-racial church. It would be white shoots black church.
Just before the shooting...he posted the following on his facebook page...
Become the creator instead of what’s created .
Whatever you say, goes.
this church shooting is obviously a racist crime and so the entire black community must have their historical statues and symbols destroyed now - mayors! governors! Haley! let’s get going!
(only slightly /s)
We have men at church who pack during church. No need to go out to their cars for their heat.
Did the gunman die?
Prayer bump for all those people at that church.
Murfreesboro - rings a bell. Wasn’t there about 12 muslims who fought Murfreesboro for a huge mosque and the town said no, too big, but they got it anyway under Obama’s JD, and now there are thousands of muslims in Murfreesboro? or am I thinking of somewhere else?
The police have identified the shooter as 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson from Murfreesboro. Here is his facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/E.to.da.Man
What’s your source? His FB page makes him out to be a devout Christian who’s fanatically devoted to body building. I didn’t see any indication of his either being into Islam or hating white people.
Yep. Small group of Muslims, huge mosque.
I didn’t say he was muslim...or that he hated white people. I just posted a link to his page...and said he was originally from the Sudan. That is all on his page.
I support your post!
No, only one old lady, so far. Some reports say he accidentally shot himself in the leg, others say the chest. His injuries are not life threatening. The pastor is in critical condition. The rest are in stable condition.
