Tennessee church shooting suspect in court Wednesday

NASHVILLE, Tennessee. – The man accused of the fatal shooting of a woman, and wounded six people at a Tennessee church in September by the court on a 43-count indictment, including first-degree murder, attempted murder and felony civil rights harassment charges.

On Wednesday, the 26-year-old, Emanuel Kidega Samson will be indicted on charges in the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ shoot in Nashville. He was indicted this month.

An arrest affidavit says Samson waived his rights and told the police he arrived armed and fired at Burnette in September.

In October, Nashville Police Detective Steve Jolly testified that a note in Samson’s car is referred to a white supremacist 2015 massacre in a South Carolina black church. Jolley said Samson told him he was not much thought to race or religion, and heard voices and had visions.
