Note in church shooting refers to Roof shooting

Emanuel Kidega Samson was identified as the alleged gunman who killed one and injured several others at a Tennessee church on September 24.

Police say Samson was driving an SUV the day of the attack, and the Associated Press now reports that a note was discovered in the SUV which references the attack on the Charleston church. The white supremacist has been sentenced to death for killing nine black worshippers at a SC church in 2015. It wasn't clear what precisely Samson is alleged to have written about the Roof shooting, or whether his note contained other important details that might also speak to a motivation or state of mind.

The note itself was not viewed by the AP, and the officers who spoke of the "investigative report" did so on condition of anonymity. Metro Nashville Police declined to comment, saying it had not released the information.

As the AP reports, authorities have opened a civil rights investigation into the attack. And spokespeople for the FBI, the USA attorney's office and District Attorney General Glenn Funk declined to comment on the ongoing investigation.


Emanuel Kidega Samson has been charged with murder in Sunday's shooting at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in the Antioch neighborhood of Nashville, Tennessee. A source within the probe said there's evidence suggesting the victims were specifically targeted while worshiping. Samson, a USA legal resident from Sudan, wrote on his page on September 24 around 11 a.m., "Everything you've ever doubted or made to believe as false, is real". His past was recently troubled.

Police records show he has expressed suicidal thoughts in recent months and been involved in several incidents in his relationship that required police intervention. He killed her, then walked in the back of the church and opened fire, wounding six more people before being taken down by a church member and subdued.

The note allegedly references retaliation for another church shooting carried out in Charleston, SC. Police say he purchased the.22-caliber, and the other three guns were given to him by a relative for safe keeping.
