22-Year-Old With Concealed Carry Stops Tennessee Church Shooter

A 22-year-old with a concealed carry license stopped a shooter at a Tennessee church after being “pistol-whipped” in the face.

Robert Engle “physically engaged” shooting suspect Emanuel K. Samson on Sunday, stopping a rampage that already had killed one and wounded seven other people, Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson said during a news conference.

“He’s the hero. He’s the person who stopped this madness,” Anderson said.

Samson allegedly entered Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tenn., around 11 a.m. CST and opened fire on more than 40 people inside. Samson had two firearms, according to police, but it’s unclear whether he used both weapons.

Engle, who apparently did not have his concealed weapon with him inside the church, confronted the shooter and was beaten with a pistol. During the fight, the shooter was shot in the chest with his own gun, according to police.

Engle then went to his car to retrieve his concealed weapon and returned to the church to await the arrival of police.

Friends of Engle, who serves as an usher at the church, said he is like a gentle giant. “He’s just a great guy,” Blake Langrod, 20, told The Tennessean. “Just one of the kindest human beings you’ll ever meet.”

“That’s like him. He’s just someone who cares about a lot of people. He has all their feelings at heart,” Engle’s grandmother Rheta Engle said. “It would make any parent, grandparent very, very proud of him.”

Samson and Engle are being treated for injuries at separate hospitals.

Samson, a 25-year-old resident of Murfreesboro, Tenn., who came to the U.S. from Sudan in the 1990s, will be charged with murder and multiple accounts of attempted murder. Police have not released Samson’s motive.

    I know his motive.

    He’s a religitard doing what religitards do. No difference from the Marx-worshipping antifa Goons, or Christians who kill abortion doctors.

    No motive released because the motive doesnt fit the narrative of gun control dbags.

    Rage and hate seem to be the order of the day. Thank God one fearless man was there to stop the madness……..

    Let’s see, black man shoots up white church, stopped by white youth with a gun. Do you suppose we’ll see the non-stop media circus there was with the Roote shooting in the black church? You know you won’t.

    • Phil_Ossifer

      Especially since the shooter was a turd-world shitskin (excuse me, “refugee”) from a Muslim country. Doesn’t come close to fitting the narrative so don’t expect any real coverage of the incident. Makes you wonder how many actual incidents like this happen that we never hear about.

  • jimmy joe

    Its still alive, eh?? Too bad, I am surrounded by a million acres {public}, with hungry wolves, drop it off in the middle. With a gut shot, it will not survive long, and nobody will hear it scream!!

    Certainly the media will be working around the clock to ignore this story. The races of those who were involved being opposite of what would fit their narrative, the people cannot be allowed to see that black people are indeed capable of being racist against white people.
    And though many motives are possible for this incident, I would suggest that perhaps payback for the church shooting by Dillon Roof could be one possible motive. But it could just as easily be plain old racism or some religious motive. Who knows with these people.
    Anyone who goes into a crowded place and shoots a bunch of people is obviously not wrapped too tight. So trying to figure out what they were thinking is an exercise in futility.
    It’s too bad that he wasn’t killed by his own gun, because now we have to pay to feed and care for this dirtbag. He’s a waste of the oxygen he breathes.

    I hope that if it ever happens at my church one of the men who are ‘on guard’ duty shoot to kill anyone who comes shooting at us.

  • Le Ruse

    The one thing funny about that shooting in the Tennessee Church ??

    Not much hooha in our Aus media about it ?? Usually they foaming at the mouth about any shooting in USA ??

    Was it because the Shooter was black & not a ,Nazi, racist white-extremist right-wing militia ??
    Humm ??

  • Laurence Almand

    You can be sure the Socialist Media will ignore this one. If he had been a Black man stopping a White nut from shooting up a Black congregation, it would be all over the news.
