Prosecutors say the man suspected in a 2017 mass shooting at an Antioch, Tenn. church, went there “with the intent to murder a minimum of 10 white churchgoers.”
During opening statements in the trial, Deputy District Attorney Amy Hunter said he left a note on the dashboard of his vehicle explaining his plans to retaliate for a 2015 church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, when white supremacist Dylann Roof killed nine black worshipers.
The note said "Dylann Roof is less than nothing," and referenced "the blood that 10 of your kind will shed ... in terms of vengeance.”
Melanie Crow was fatally shot as she walked through the parking lot.
Church member Caleb Engle tackled the shooter as he reloaded his gun and held him down with his own pistol.
