With great sadness, the Embassy of the Republic of the Sudan condemns the heinous shooting attack on Burnette Chapel Church of Christ of Antioch, Tennessee that took place on September 24th,   2017 leaving  one dead and six injured.

While we express our heartfelt condolences to the family of the 39 year old victim, Melanie Smith and send our sincere prayers to the injured to recover soon,  the Embassy also would like to confirm that the shooter named Emnuel Kidega Samson is not as Sudanese national as some media outlets have reported in their  news coverage , and that he is a national of a different country other than the Republic of the Sudan.
