Suspect’s Motive Still Unclear One Day After Mass Shooting At Las Vegas Festival

Paddock’s attack appeared to be premeditated, Lombardo said, citing the large number of weapons ― 23 total ― found in the gunman’s hotel room. This included five handguns, two shotguns and a “plethora of ammunition,” as well as a firearm with a possible “bump stock” modification that “enables a person to speed up ammunition,” Lombardo said.

Suspect in Tennessee Church Mass Shooting Has History of Alleged Domestic Disputes

The man accused of killing one woman and injuring seven other people at a Tennessee church on Sunday had threatened suicide and was involved in alleged domestic disputes in the months leading up to the attack, police records show.

Emanuel K. Samson, 25, was arrested on Sunday after allegedly opening fire inside Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tenn. He has been charged with first-degree murder, and more charges are likely to come, police said.

Less than three months earlier, on June 27, Murfreesboro police responded to a call from his father, Vanansio Samson, that Emanuel was having suicidal thoughts.

Suspect charged with murder in mass shooting at Tennessee church

A Tennessee man was held without bond Sunday night on a first-degree murder charge after he allegedly opened fire while wearing a mask at a church outside Nashville, killing one person and injuring six others, authorities said.

Police identified the suspect as Emanuel Kidega Samson, 25, and said in a statement that more charges were expected.

Police found four guns believed to be Samson’s, the statement said — a rifle and a pistol in the suspect’s SUV, along with two other pistols — in Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, where Melanie Smith, 39, was killed as she walked to her car shortly after 11 a.m.

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) –

We are continuing to learn more details on the Clovis-Carver Public Library shooting incident that left two people dead and four injured.

Court records released today says 16-year-old Nathaniel Jouett took two handguns from his father’s safe. His father then called 911 to report the guns missing just 16 minutes after police were alerted of the shooting.

Jouett admitted to the shooting and said it’s something he’s been thinking about “for a while.”

“I didn’t think I would do it,” said Jouett, “I thought I would kill myself or a bunch of people.” 

Jouett continued on by telling officers that he didn’t intend to shoot anyone in particular and he just began shooting and yelling.

Teen Mass Shooting Suspect Was Searching for ‘Inner Peace’

Authorities plan to charge Jouett with two counts of first-degree murder, four counts of assault with intent to commit a violent felony, four counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and one count of child abuse, Police Chief Douglas Ford said.

The Associated Press generally does not identify juveniles accused of crimes. But it is identifying Jouett because of the seriousness of the crime and because authorities said they plan to file a motion requesting the case’s transfer from the juvenile system to adult court.

There’s no indication Jouett knew the victims, and
