"Mr. Samson didn't expect Mr. Engle to encounter him, to struggle with him, to try to stop the shooting", said Don Aaron, the spokesman for the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department. None of their injuries were life-threatening, police said. His phone was traced to an address in Nashville, the report states.
Engle, who apparently did not have his concealed weapon with him inside the church, confronted the shooter and was beaten with a pistol. Police said during a press conference Monday that Samson also had an unloaded semi-automatic AR-15 rifle, as well as another handgun, but found no ammunition for the rifle.
Police in Murfreesboro, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) southeast of the church, responded to a call from Samson's father, who had reported that his son had texted him June 27 to say: "Your phone is off, I have a gun to my head, have a nice f-- life".
In March, police were dispatched to Samson's home, where he said the woman was trying force entry despite his attempts to break off contact with her. In the report, Samson is quoted saying that the woman banged on his door, got loud when he spoke with her and then pushed the door open when he tried to close it.
When he fell, Engle, despite his head injuries, ran to his auto and came back with a pistol, police said.
