What does "his motive in the shooting was unclear" mean? That we have an idea or two but we don't know what or "we have no idea yet"? The use of "unclear" is not clear.

TuckerMax, are you just so rabid to post your own rhetoric on this you demand answers? It's unclear and that's good enough for now. Get your panties out of a wad for a bit and let police investigations continue. The shooter is alive so they can do interviews to determine more.

Sudanese Black muslim shoots up white Christian church, armed white usher resists, retrieves lawful firearm, as perp commits suicide.....and 24 hour later the media is trying its hardest to bury this story....because we are still stuck on rebel flags, csa statues, and nfl commies.

abb, that was a stupid, STUPID comment. If you look at the photos from the church in the Tennessean there were several African-American members. One was a young 10 year old boy who barricaded his Sunday School class to block the shooter, injuring his ankle in the process. That's about the most racist statement I've seen lately. The shooter had also attended church services there for a while in the past.

Once again, the alt right comes through with misinformation.

This tragic event wasn't the lead story on this morning's CBS News, being overshadowed by the national anthem/NFL drama, nor did it make it to the top front page fold on today's ADG. IMO it'll fade quickly in the news spotlight. Why? First, an alleged black shooter, coming from Sudan as a child in 1996, who was a legal resident, but not a legal citizen of the USA. Sudan has just now come off of the list of travel ban countries to the US, and is estimated to be 71 to 97% Muslim, according to Wikipedia. Second, out of a multi-ethnic congregation, at least 2 of the injured victims were white. Third, a legally registered firearm was used in legal defense of potential victims until police arrived. Fourth, the violence was directed toward members of a fundamental, evangelical Christian church (from church's website). These facts just don't support most national news media's parameters for an enduring news story to further their agendas. Move along folks, nothing to see here.
