Shots fired at another church in Memphis after choir practice

Police in Memphis are claiming that shots were fired at yet another church.  According to authorities, the target was St. Matthew Missionary Baptist Church.

The deacon of the church says he saw bullet holes in the church Wednesday night after leaving choir practice.  Thankfully, no one was injured in the shooting.

Fox 13 says that police are still investigating the shooting to determine the cause of the shooting.

Facts are limited, but here’s what’s being reported so far.

  •  MPD says, “There is nothing indicating that this shooting is connected in any way to the shooting in South Carolina.”

This shooting comes on the heels of another tragic incident in Charleston, South Carolina. In Charleston, police say that 21-year old Dylann Roof was responsible for going into the Emanuel AME Church during bible study and shooting nine people. So far, eight of the victims are confirmed dead.

Polce are still on the hunt for Roof and say that he’s armed and dangerous. They also believe the shooting to be a hate crime, based on the things that Roof said to the victims as he shot them in the church. Authorities say that Roof was in the church for over an hour before opening fire upon those in attendance.

    It’s connected. These are planned attacks and other churches will be hit then the hateful racists that are committing these crimes against black churches will resort to old school itimidation tactics and once again begin to burn churches. I pray no one else will be hurt but this is how the KKK and other white supremacist groups plan to start a race war. Years in the making and big money spent.

    These evil animals are cowards, they prey on a church knowing people are unarmed. There’s is a saying, “watch as well as praying”. Now you have to arm yourself as well as praying. These evil cowards won’t mess with the blacks that will fight back. This is 2015 not 1940’s or 50’s. It’s too much of a burden to hate.

    I don’t know if this is totally true. If a racist person or group are trying to provoke a race war why go after the most pacific and forgiven group. Personally, I think that they are cowards. I also believe if any white supremacy group or individual wants to start a race war needs to do is to attack a black mosque or Black Panthers Chapter. Then I truly believe the objective is a lot closer being accomplished. That’s if an individual or group makes out alive. This alone shows the person or group are in their right mind by being selective in their target.
