A masked gunman opened fire at TN church Sunday morning, killing one person and wounding seven others. Emanuel K Samson shot and killed 39-year-old Melanie Smith in the parking lot of the Christ Burnette Chapel in Antioch before moving into the church and opening fire. An usher confronted the shooter, who apparently shot himself in the struggle before he was arrested. Police say Samson was armed with two guns at the time of the shooting. The FBI said Sunday night it has opened a civil rights investigation into the shooting at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ. Samson has been charged with one count of murder. Other charges will follow according to Metro Nashville Police. No motive was immediately determined.
