As Twitchy reported, one woman was killed and seven other people hurt after a gunman entered Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tenn., and opened fire Sunday.

We’re old enough to remember when a church shooting was a big deal, but details are difficult to come by in the mainstream outlets Monday. Police are still looking for a motive, but they have identified as a suspect Emanuel Kidega Samson, 25. Police originally described Samson as African-American, but revealed later that he’s a legal U.S. resident who immigrated from Sudan in 1996.

As Twitchy also reported, anti-gun activist Shannon Watts reacted predictably, blaming Congress for not standing up to the NRA — although it was a concealed carry holder and usher at the church, 22-year-old Robert Engle, who held the gunman at bay until police arrived.

Although police haven’t confirmed any social media presence, it didn’t take Internet detectives long to find a Facebook page belonging to an Emanuel K. Samson originally from Sudan and living in Tennessee. Jesse Kelly gives a pretty good summary of what can be found there.


Here’s a prescient tweet from Sunday evening:

Fear not … CNN is ON IT. They even tweeted about it Monday. Tuesday? We’ll have to wait and see.
