1 killed, 6 shot at Antioch Church
My hometown was absolutely shocked and still in shock when Emanuel K. Samson shot and killed at least one woman and injured 7 more including himself
this morning while they attended church.
This is of course an ongoing investigation with many unanswered questions. The man lived about 25 minutes away. Why this church? Also, he seems to be
an articulate college student or graduate from Africa who was into health and fitness with a love of God.
Last few posts on his Facebook account were right before the shootings all related to God.
