Well, this is rather inconvenient to the leftist narrative, isn’t it?
On Sunday morning, a masked gunman opened fire in a church, killing one person and injuring six others. He was stopped by a brave usher who risked his life to save his fellow church-goers.
The shooter was a 25-year old man who was born in Sudan.
Emanuel Kidega Samson had lived in Rutherford County and in South Nashville near Burnette Bethel Church of Christ and had no criminal charges listed against him in the public record.
‘A gunman wearing a neoprene mask arrived in the parking lot and one woman who was walking to her vehicle was immediately fatally wounded by the gunman,’ Metro Nashville Police Department spokesman Don Aaron said at a press conference.
The shooter was a big dude — a bodybuilder.
Melanie Crow Smith, 39, of Smyrna, died and another six were injured when Emanuel Kidega Samson, 25, opened fire at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ, 30 minutes southeast of Nashville in Antioch, as services let out at 11.15am.
The attack only stopped thanks to the brave actions of an armed church usher and Samson, a Sudanese-born bodybuilder, was arrested at the scene.
Samson had posted some cryptic messages on Facebook before the shooting:
He appears to have made a number of cryptic Facebook posts on Sunday morning, moments before his rampage, writing: ‘Everything you’ve ever doubted or made to be believe as false, is real. & vice versa, B.‘
In another, he wrote: ‘Become the creator instead of what’s created. Whatever you say, goes.‘
The hero of this story is a 22-year old man named Robert Engle. Despite being repeatedly pistol-whipped, he went up against this armed bodybuilder in a hand-to-hand confrontation to keep him from shooting others.
Robert Engle, 22, identified by friends on social media, had ran up to confront Samson and despite being repeatedly pistol-whipped in the head, was able to force Samson to shoot himself in the leg.
Engle then went to his car, grabbed his own pistol, and returned to hold the shooter at gunpoint.
In a press conference, police explain that Engle had a permit to carry a handgun.
‘This particular church member has a handgun carry permit.
‘The usher went to his vehicle, got his gun, came back inside and made sure the gunman didn’t make anymore movements until the police department arrived.’
Imagine that — a legal gun-owner coming to the rescue.
Engle, whose two passions appear to be God and guns, according to his Facebook page, was taken to TriStar Skyline Medical Center along with the last shooting victim.
The church usher, a former warehouse worker, lives in Mount Juliet, Tennessee.
