Sus­pect may have sought Charleston re­venge

Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - Nation&world -

WASH­ING­TON — A note found in the car of a man charged with spray­ing deadly gun­fire at a Tennessee church made ref­er­ence to re­venge for a white su­prem­a­cist’s mas­sacre at a black church in Charleston, S.C., two years ear­lier, law en­force­ment of­fi­cials told The As­so­ci­ated Press.

The note could of­fer a glimpse into Emanuel Kidega Sam­son’s mind­set at the time of Sun­day’s shoot­ing and a pos­si­ble mo­tive for the ram­page, which left a woman dead and six other peo­ple wounded. White su­prem­a­cist Dy­lann Roof killed nine black wor­ship­pers at the South Carolina church in 2015.
