NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The man charged in a shooting that killed one person and wounded six others at a Tennessee church will get a new court date.
In Davidson County court Friday, public defender Jonathan Wing said the preliminary hearing isn't set yet for 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson. He wasn't in court Friday.
Samson is charged with the Sept. 24 fatal shooting of one woman at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Nashville. Additional charges are expected. He's being held without bond.
An arrest affidavit says Samson waived his rights and told police he arrived armed and fired at Burnette.
Police haven't determined a motive. Law enforcement officials told The Associated Press a note in Samson's car referenced retaliation for a white supremacist's 2015 massacre at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina.
