Funeral set for Tennessee woman shot at church

Nearly 50 people were inside and the gunman wounded six. The Metro Nashville Police Department spokesman said that those individuals were now receiving medical assistance at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center whereas the the person who was assaulted by the gunman's weapon and another victim were admitted to Skyline Medical Center.

Police say Emanuel Kidega Samson shot and killed a woman in the parking lot of Burnette Chapel Church of Christ as the church dismissed at 11:15 a.m. Sunday.

No motive was immediately determined. Nashville police did not immediately comment on several weird posts on the suspect's page in the hours before the shooting. Samson had already murdered a woman in the church parking lot before bursting inside. They described his demeanor as "professional" and said they had "no reason to believe" that he would harm himself, Aaron said. According to Aaron, one of the attendees at the church attempted to intervene and presumably block the gunman from further conducting attacks but the churchgoer was physically assaulted by the suspect with his weapon.

An usher at the Burnett Chapel Church of Christ is being hailed a hero for stopping a gunman in his tracks. Church members told investigators that Samson had attended services a year or two ago.

"We are beyond grateful for the enormous outpouring of love and compassion we have received from so many after the tragic event that took place yesterday", the church said. "Without him I think it could be worse". The suspect said nothing as he fired.

"He was shooting, and then he's standing in the pulpit and he start shooting more", Rosa said. He hit and wounded six people, including the church pastor, before he was confronted by 22-year-old usher Robert Caleb Engle.

A woman, named as 39-year-old Melanie Smith of Smyrna, was found dead in the vehicle park near the suspect's auto.

Engle, in a statement from the hospital where he was treated, said he didn't want to be labeled as a hero.

If Congress does not act soon, many states, including Idaho, will be out of funding for the program by the end of December. And, you know, it's very hard to see how they can grow it more slowly than inflation and still cover those people.

The church's pastor, Joey Spann, and his wife Peggy were among those injured in the shooting, the Nashville Christian School said. New Beautiful Gate Pastor Michael Mosby said he is neighbors with Spann.

"As a pastor myself, you come with the expectation of sitting down and having a service and not thinking about what can happen around you", Mosby said.

The young man says he's not a hero, but we know he is. We're always on guard.

Police said 42 people were in the church at the time of the attack.

The small brick church describes itself on its website as a "friendly, Bible-based group of folks who love the Lord and are interested in spreading his word to those who are lost". & vice versa." Another post read, "Become the creator instead of what's created.

On June 27, according to the Tennessean, Samson also threatened to kill himself in a text message to his father. In some, he wears a tank top that reads "Beast Mode".

Megan Barry, mayor of Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County, said that the shooting "is a awful tragedy for our city".
